Data Set ID : MESS-E/V/H-MASCS-4-VIRS-DDR-V1.0
Release : 0016
Data Set Name : MESSENGER E/V/H MASCS 4 VIRS DERIVED DATA V1.0
Description : Release 16 of MESSENGER MASCS DDR data includes revisions to all previously released DDR products on volume MESSMAS_2001 to correct an error in the photometric normalization section of the calibration pipeline: a missing division-by-2. All previously released photometrically corrected MASCS VIRS DDR data were a factor of 2 too high in value. This release corrects that error. Note that Release 16 also includes a new MASCS volume, MESSMAS_2101, which contains version 2.0 of the DDR data set. In version 2.0, the division-by-2 error has been corrected AND a new photometric normalization has been applied. Both versions of the DDR data set will remain available in PDS.
