I think the part that is throwing me off a bit is the "Daily NCFs were then
obtained by stacking 30-min NCFs".
This sound like to be, they took their individual 30 min NCFs and stacked
them, so that each day is represented by the stacked summation of 48
I assumed that meant that both corr_duration and analysis duration were set
to 3600, but maybe not.
I'll probably just send an email out to them to see what parameters they
