Sarcasm..not really needed. Given what's being studied and the instruments being used.. NIST, temp, and humidity is going a bit far. If you think skipping the evaluation of measurement system error is a waste of time, then you've never really done work where it matters. If measurement error is significant in a study(relative to what's being studied) then the entire study will be a waste of time. I doubt anyone wants to make a few hundred measurements only to end up with a shrug of one's shoulders and an "I don't know..?"

What are your thoughts on how Andy should proceed?
