4 km AVHRR Pathfinder Quality Assurance
Several quality assurance steps are conducted to insure the integrity of the data provided here. These steps are conducted routinely during the processing and transfer stages of the system. Note that these steps are aimed primarily at assuring items like file integrity and availability, not at the accuracy of the derived sea surface temperature (SST) values. That type of quality control is integral to the Pathfinder processing through derivation of parameters like the overall quality flag and quality mask values, as well as post-processing studies being carried out to test the satellite SSTs against in situ observations.
The steps to insure file integrity are as follows:
