Description : Release 16 of MESSENGER MASCS DDR data includes a new MASCS volume, MESSMAS_2101, which contains version 2.0 of the DDR data set. In version 2.0, a new photometric normalization has been applied to the DDR data and an error has been corrected in the previous photometric normalization that caused the data to be a factor of 2 too high in value. Both version 1.0 of the DDR data set on volume MESSMAS_2001 and version 2.0 on volume MESSMAS_2101 will remain available in PDS. The factor-of-2 error correction has also been made to the version 1.0 DDR data set. Volume MESSMAS_2101 also includes a new combined UVVS-VIRS DDR data set, MESS-E/V/H-MASCS-4-UVVS/VIRS-DDR-V1.0 In addition to the new and revised data products, volume MESSMAS_2101 includes a new document, 'MASCS/VIRS Lamp-Based Flat Field Report', in the DOCUMENT directory.
