Licence See the Algorithm Theoretical Basis Document for a description of the use limitations for this dataset. Products apply to over-ocean only. The values at polar latitudes (outside 60 degree north or south) are degraded due to surface contamination from ice and degraded cloud screening at polar latitudes. The quality of the output CDR data is dependent on the quality of the input data. As such, the near real-time data is labeled as an Interim operational CDR (ICDR) or preliminary CDR instead of a final CDR, indicating that it has not yet been fully vetted for climate applications. The near real-time ICDR/preliminary data will transition to final CDR status after the data have undergone further analysis and processing. The expected time lag of the final CDR transition is approximately one year. The state of a data file is indicated within each file name.
