Aqurius/SAC-D RFI data?

Now, I am using Aquarius/SAC-D SSS for studying Korean water at Graduate school(PhD course).

Some salinity values were weired in Korean water.

So, I guessed that was error cause by RFI.

I found RFI monthly images in web site, but there was not data.

Also, images are focused on America and Europe not north-east Asia(Korea).

I'd like to download RFI data or just images for my study.

If I use RFI images, I can usderstand SSS well in Korean water.

Thanks.appvalley tutuapp tweakbox

Dear Landonadrian:
Thank you for your question. Yes RFI is a major issue in the Salinity contamination. The ancillary data used in the Aquarius product may be accessed through:
https://podaac.jpl.nasa.gov/dataset/AQU ... =%22RFI%22
As RfI should be pretty constant, unless the sources themselves change, looking at the region of interest fo for a given period of time should be representative.

Please don't hesitate to contact us if we can be of any further help.
