Vertical sensitivityEstimates of the deuterium content of water vapor are most sensitive to deuterium variability between 825 and 400 mb.
Data qualityThe data have undergone a pre-quality check, which involves checks for retrieval convergence and measurement sensitivity. There are no checks for clouds or land versus ocean as we do not find these to substantively affect the quality of the retrieval as long as the retrieval has converged.
UncertaintyProfiles have approximately 3-5% uncertainty (or ~ 40 per mil). Integrated values between 825 and 400 mb have approximately 3% (or 30 per mil) uncertainty
Validation StageAIRS HDO data are at validation Stage 3 and CRIS HDO data are at validation stage 2 according to NASA guidelines
