SeaDAS 7.5.1 Release Notes     
                                                     
Release Date: Jul 05,2018

The SeaDAS development team is pleased to announce the release of SeaDAS 7.5.1Highlights of what's new to SeaDAS 7.5.1: 
- Adds OBPG science processing capability for the Aquarius mission.

PRIMARY PACKAGE FEATURE ADDITIONS/MODIFICATIONS       
- No revisions since version 7.5
 
BUG FIXES       
- No fixes since version 7.5

OBPG SCIENCE PROCESSING CODE AND RELATED GUI 
Now supports Aquarius in both GUI and command line. The GUI has been simplified and now uses a predefined  suite (V5.0.0) and automatically retrieves all needed ancillary data. l2gen_aquarius 
- GUI automatically retrieves ancillary data.       
- Latest products have been added.  l2bin_aquarius      
- Updated. The radiometer processor source code for the final reprocessing of the Aquarius mission (v5.0), along with instructions for compiling the code is available:    https://oceandata.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/ocs ... ode.tar.gz 

This bundle does not include the code for the scatterometer instrument as those    codes have not been released by JPL.  The radiometer code uses the files output    by the scatterometer processing code as ancillary input.  These processed files    are available and the ancillary retrieval scripts provided with SeaDAS will identify and retrieve the appropriate files. 
 
KNOWN ISSUES   
- If only VIIRS is installed then you need to either install MODIS Aqua or Terra (downloads a Gig of data)or from command line do "update_luts.py aqua" or "update_luts.py terra".   
- Multilevel_processor does not support: MERIS, OLI and GOCINOTES Some of the help pages internal to SeaDAS 7.5.1 have not yet been revised to match the current version so there can be    some wording discrepancies as well as feature description differences. We also produce video help tutorials <b>(https://seadas.gsfc.nasa.gov/tutorials/)</b>.  In addition, we regularly respond to SeaDAS issues on the our user forum (https://oceancolor.gsfc.nasa.gov/forum/ ... um_show.pl). Questions posted on the forum help aid us in determining aspects of SeaDAS which may benefit by refinement, as well as give us ideas  for topics to be used in future tutorial videos.  Also note that these internal help pages are also made available at (https://seadas.gsfc.nasa.gov/help/) If you already have SeaDAS version 7 or higher installed: In your home directory there is a directory titled '.seadas'. This contains version-specific preferences and defaults.  This directory also contains any custom color palettes and rgb-profiles which you may have    created.  Because of this, a seadas installation will automatically move and rename the previous '.seadas'    directory putting it in your home directory.  When seadas is launched and does not find this '.seadas' directory, it will automatically create this directory and initialize it with the package settings and defaults. You can then manually copy any of your custom color palettes and rgb-profiles from the backed up copy of your previous version's '.seadas' directory over into the '.seadas' directory.
