When calculating the mean for a set of daily average windspeed data, do you treat the n/a as 0 (and keep the number days to use in the calculation) or just ignore it all together? Any help is appreciated!!

n/a fields represent 'not available' so you have to ignore it from your data - there is no reading.
iirc - i'm terrible at stats so if somebody can correct me, go ahead :d but what I said makes sense, right? haha

Ive always used N/A as 0 as in i dont include it in the mean. If its a 'tr' then you have to use 0.05.
