NCEI-Binned Level-3 SSS Data
DQMS Level-3 data improves the application of satellite SSS products in NOAA by minimizing data latency to within 24 hours of Level-2 data availability.
Quality Monitoring Figures
Quality monitoring (QM) figures allow users to compare the original and quality flagged granules to gauge the impact of QM measures. These graphics represent descriptive statistics of SSS in each satellite's Level-2 granule (orbit data file) after the quality and land/ice mask flags have been applied. Statistics include total valid observation number, minimum, maximum, mean, standard deviation and total number over 3-sigma edited.
