Legend for indicating problem flights in the individual storm pages

Directions: In the list of flights used in the data file, color the flight name according to whether it is a good or bad flight. Use green to indicate all normal flights with good data.

Example of a good flight:

20121024U2.1sec.txt

Example of a flight that has incorrect ferry leg masking (leave the filename in green as we believe it is still a good flight):

20121025H1_AXC.nc - incorrect ferry leg masking

Black can also be used to indicate other minor problems or notations (this example is from Ernesto):

20120803U2.1sec.txt - odd flight pattern
20120804U1.1sec.txt - problem with Earth-relative plot: flight appears to be over land, but it was actually over water

Example of an aborted flight:

20121025U2.1sec.txt - flight aborted

Example of a synoptic surveillance flight:

20120826N2_AXC.nc - synoptic surveillance flight

Example of a ferry flight:

20121029U1.1sec.txt – ferry flight

Example of a poststorm air-sea flight:

20120830H1_DXC.nc - poststorm air-sea flight

Example of a flight that has an unrealistically high wind speed value (use normal red):

20121016H1_AC.nc - max FL wind speed 227 m s-1

Example of a flight that should definitely be removed from the dataset (either is a duplicate or obviously doesn't belong to this storm – use bold red):

20120827N1.1sec.txt - this is a duplicate of 20120827H2

 

Legend for indicating problem flights in the main summary table

Directions: Write a short summary in the 'Notes' column of the main summary table to indicate how many flights had each type of problem (don't include this if everything is okay). Replace '#' with the actual # of flights affected by each type of problem.

Examples:

data files currently include # aborted flights

data files currently include # ferry flights

data files currently include # synoptic surveillance flights

data files currently include # post-storm air-sea flight

# flights had incorrect ferry leg masking
