Problems in V1.0
|Variable||Version||Problem||Reason and fix plan|
|V1.0||Extremely large wind values (e.g., > 30 m/s) or zero value are occasionally found in the near coastal and sea ice regions.||A technical problems in data processing procedure. It will be fixed in the next data update.|
|QA||V1.0||Data availability near sea ice regions is different year to year.||The reason is a problem in our data processing program code about sea ice flags for SSMI and SSMIS brightness temperature. We will fix this issue by the next data update.|
|QA||V1.0||Artificial distribution depending on water vapor scale height (Hv)||This is because of a minor problem in our Qa estimation method. It will be fixed to use a latest and fixed version by the next data update.|
|TA10||V1.0||Extremely large values (e.g., > 40 deg. C) are occasionally found in the near coastal region.||A technical problems in data processing procedure. It will be fixed in the next data update.|
