Correct bbw values

by tihicha » Wed Nov 25, 2020 5:25 pm America/New_York

Hello Bryan,
In the MODIS/VIIRS ST meeting a few days ago you mentioned that a bug in bbw values led to them being a few nm off. Are the values available here now OK/corrected:

In particular, I'm using values as given in the example below. Are these the corrected ones or the old ones that need correcting?

440.00 0.00635000 0.00501629
441.00 0.00659592 0.00496773
442.00 0.00684325 0.00491975
443.00 0.00706914 0.00487235

which as of now are the same as in the file linked above.

Thanks a lot for your time!

Correct bbw values

The values in the file are fine, the issue was a bug in the code that reads the ascii file.  The file had a few lines that were 'comments' but not recognized as comments by the code, so a shift occurred in reading the values into the defined array.
