Additional Notes:

 
       On 2002-06-10, the USDA changed the output files for their
       MFRSR and UV-MFRSR instruments.  The data are now checked for
       quality.  And the non-radiometric auxilliary data have been
       split of into separate files sgpusdaradauxX1.00 and
       sgpusdauvmfrsrauxX1.00.
