|ADPQC — Adaptive QC Statistics for SST, 1x1, 1800-1997|
A special 'Adaptive QC' procedure was developed based on ICOADS Release 2.4 and applied to SST for a limited time (1800-1997). This method has NOT been applied to other variables and will not be temporally extended, therefore it should be considered experimental.
* COS blocks can be checked and removed by the Unix utility programs 'cosfile', 'cossplit', and 'cosconvert'. These utilities are available on most CISL computers; otherwise see our COS-blocking documentation page at http://rda.ucar.edu/index.html#cosb to download them.
