Data Quality final
  • 1.0 (2015-11-09)
  • 1.1 (2016-10-04):

    For this version the only change was an updated readme file that notes that a constant radial velocity bias of +0.5 m/s was found after the completion of PECAN operations and users should be sure to subtract this offset from the radial velocity before doing any calculations.

(Only the current version of the data is available to order. If you have questions about a prior version, please email us.)
