Performance Degradation and Q/C Flagging of Aquarius L2 Salinity Retrievals

DOI 10.5067/DOCUM-AQR06
Document Title Performance Degradation and Q/C Flagging of Aquarius L2 Salinity Retrievals
Description This memo summarizes the results of an analysis of the degradation in the Aquarius Level 2 salinity retrievals under a variety of environmental and geophysical conditions. Based on the observed performance degradation, threshold values for the L2 Q/C (quality control) are derived.  This QC flagging regime has been implemented in the Aquarius L2 mission data since V4.0.
