I just downloaded monthly SST day time data MODISA_L3m_SST_Monthly_4km_vR2019.0 from Giovanni, I found 'qual_flag' is one of the variable in addition to the SST product itself. What is the purpose of 'qual_flag' variable? Is this variable like a correction to the SST product or something? Do I need to consider this variable? If yes, how can I use this variable to correct the SST product?
I also downloaded monthly Chlorophyll-a data MODISA_L3m_CHL v 2018 from Giovanni. This product are processed by OCI or OCx algorithm?
