SGP/SIRS/E5 - anomalously low NIP readings
|DataStreams:||sgpsirsE5.b1, sgpsirs20sE5.a0, sgpsirsE5.00|
Direct normal (NIP instrument) irradiance readings fall anomalously on 3/17 18:43GMT to less than half the expected values during clear sky conditions. NIP readings returned to normal on 3/28/04 12:00. Maintenance on 3/29/04 19:48 revealed no unusual contaminents. Precipitation on 3/27 (measured by the SMOS system) probably cleared the NIP window of contaminents before scheduled maintenance.
