Quality LOGICAL CONSISTENCY REPORT: Since similar products are produced from the SSM/I, NESDIS/ORA has more than a decade of experience in SSM/I product verification and validation. Thus, for all products, comparable SSM/I products are one verification source. SSM/I data are used both for near-real time product monitoring and for product validation and verification. An ever-increasing suite of in-situ, ... View entire text
