When I use WS to retrieve the following search
https://podaac.jpl.nasa.gov/ws/search/d ... ormat=html
The first result in the search result is SeaWinds on QuikSCAT Level 3 Surface Eastward Wind for Climate Model Comparison Dataset ID: PODAAC-QSSEW-CMIP1. When I look at the GCMD manifestation of this dataset (which exists at https://podaac.jpl.nasa.gov/ws/metadata ... ormat=gcmd), I see that the XML document begins with the following code
<DIF xsi:schemaLocation="http://gcmd.gsfc.nasa.gov/Aboutus/xml/dif/ http://gcmd.nasa.gov/Aboutus/xml/dif/dif_v9.8.2.xsd">
This is to say that the xsi:schemaLocation parameter points to a deprecated version of the GCMD-DIF Schema e.g. v9.8.2.
The current GCMD-DIF XSD can be accessed at
I am not stating that anything is necessarily wrong here (I have not undertaken any XSD compliance checks yet) however it it worth me noting.
I'll be looking into this more over the next day or so, so i will notify if I find any anomalies.
