Recovery Report Writing
The ["NGS"] has [http://www.ngs.noaa.gov/cgi-bin/ds_lookup.prl?Item=STATION%20RECOVERY guidelines] on writing a ["recovery report"] for a ["station"]. (The referenced chapter 3 no longer exists). Whether or not you submit station recovery reports on the NGS site, their guidelines are good ones to use, having evolved over a lot of time.
[:Found or Not Found:Determining whether or not you have found the station]
[:Found Notes:What to note in your report]
[:Condition Definitions:Definitions of "Good", "Poor", "Not Found", "Destroyed"]
