Title: PF_length_weight_parameters.csv
Status: Completed
Abstract:

Provides parameters to convert length to weight and their sources

Notes:

There is a space in the path to the distribution file.

The NCEI redirect for when it will migrate to the cloud chokes on paths with an embedded spade so this will need to be fixed when ncei migration to the cloud will be completed.
