Mission Operations Update #2

Update to MIGHTI Temperature product (2.3) and FTP site organization

There is an update coming for MIGHTI 2.3 temperatures, bringing the product up to version 4. The change affects nighttime temperature retrievals. Details are available in the history attribute in the NetCDF, and also in the online documentation, given in the link below which will be live when the product is available:


Furthermore, a change to the ftp site has been implemented, where all MIGHTI products will now appear in a single directory (no longer split between MIGHTI-A and MIGHTI-B for Level 2.1 and 2.3). So specifically, the following 3 products will be found here, where the year and day of year are given generically :

2.1 ftp://icon-science.ssl.berkeley.edu/pub/LEVEL.2/MIGHTI/yyyy/ddd/LOS-Winds/

2.2 ftp://icon-science.ssl.berkeley.edu/pub/LEVEL.2/MIGHTI/yyyy/ddd/Vector-Winds/

2.3 ftp://icon-science.ssl.berkeley.edu/pub/LEVEL.2/MIGHTI/yyyy/ddd/Temperature/
