============================================================================ SeaDAS 7.2 - Release Notes (05/06/2015) ============================================================================ The SeaDAS development team is pleased to announce the release of SeaDAS 7.2This release includes several new and updated features, as well as bug fixes.****************************************************************************~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~SeaDAS Application ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ New Features: Band Filters Added - Low-Pass Radial Attenuation - Circular Mean - Straylight Bathymetry - Bathymetry values are now 'true depth' accounting for local water surface height instead of being relative to sea level - Bathymetry values are now in positive units. - Default bathymetry color scheme is in log space to better depict shallow water floor features. Color Palettes Added/Revised - Bathymetry color palette revised with a smoother transition from light blue-green to dark blue-green. - Various gradient palettes added. - Default (oceancolor_standard.cpd) revised to not use black at high saturation. Color Schemes: - Added a user-defined data file for generating custom schemes and/or overriding default schemes. - Added a user-defined data file for customizing the scheme selector - Added a wildcard feature to enable more generic auto-application of color schemes. Contour Lines - Refinements to user interface. - Now uses a band filter by default. RGB "True Color" Profiles Added - Includes profiles for several missions using relevant rhos bands. - Includes hybrid profiles with separate land and water algorithms (uses level-2 file LAND mask) Bug Fixes: Color Schemes - Fixed bug where parameter changes in the Color Manager of a band which did not match a default scheme name were being lost when toggling between bands. Contour Lines - Fixed bugs related to the usage of band filters inside of the contour tool. - Fixed bugs which could cause program freeze-up on invalid user GUI field entries. Known Issues: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Processing Code (OCSSW)~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The science processing code has been updated to reflect changes recently implementedin production (e.g. corrected implementation of the chlorophyll algorithm that resultedin the reprocessing version R2014.1 of the VIIRS mission). New Features/Modifications: Support for the Operational Land Imager on Landsat 8 New program added, l3mapgen - an eventual replacement for smigen l1bgen binary renamed l1bgen_generic removed limit on NDVI calculation revised the MODIS L1 reader function Added 3 new Primary Productivity L2 products: opp_befa opp_eppley opp_cbpm2 Improved “dataday” calcluation for l2bin Generalized L2 flag percentages and added new flag percentages for: flags_sst flags_sst4 flags_giop flags_qaa flags_carder flags_niwa Bug Fixes: Corrected indexing error in the qaa (and related) algorithm updated several product scaling/min/max definitions fixed a segmentation fault bug in l2extract netCDF extraction corrected dpixl/dline implementation several minor metadata corrections fixed bug that caused a segmentation fault in l2gen if multiple output files were defined for netCDF4 fix for chl_hu, chl_oci, to correct algebraic error in original implementation. ============================================================================ Regards, The SeaDAS Development Group
