7. Data Set Updates
As of 2011, dataset updates are not expected, and GES DISC provides only limited support to TOVS Path-A and -B collections, as legacy data.
It is obligatory that any publication or presentation that uses the TOVS Pathfinder data acknowledge the source.The requested form of acknowledgment for any publication in which the TOVS Pathfinder data are used is
Data used by the authors in this study include data produced through funding from the Earth Observing System Pathfinder Program of NASA's Mission to Planet Earth in cooperation with National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.The data were provided by the Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS), Distributed Active Archive Center at Goddard Space Flight Center which archives, manages, and distributes this data set.
