September 15, 2022. LRO Release 51 includes new Diviner EDR data acquired between March 16 and June 15, 2022. The release of Diviner RDRs remains delayed. See below and ERRATA.TXT for details.

August 26, 2022. The first release of the seasonal Diviner Polar Cumulative Products (PCPs) is posted. These products use the PDS4 standard. In addition, the previously released diurnal Diviner PCPs have been migrated to PDS4. See readme.txt for details. The Diviner Team will begin releasing all new data products in PDS4 in 2023, and eventually all Diviner PDS3 products will be migrated to PDS4.

The release of Diviner RDR products has been delayed in order to correct a data processing error recently discovered. Since April 17, 2019 at 12:00, almost all
(99.25%) Diviner RDR products have been missing temperature brightness data for the solar channels 1 and 2. A small amount of temperature brightness data in non-solar channels (channels 3 through 9) is also missing since this date. It's only about 1.1%, but it is significant because prior to this date almost none of it was missing. JPL is currently tracking down the reason for the missing data and hopes to have a fix for it fairly soon. When it is fixed, the Diviner team will redeliver all the RDR products since
April 17, 2019.

Records with missing brightness temperature data have the value -9999 in the "tb" column (column 24) of the Diviner RDR data product. The missing data is the result of processing errors, and is not due to a fault with the instrument. The EDR data products are not affected by these errors.

The Diviner Lunar Radar Experiment is a multi-channel solar reflectance and infrared radiometer that maps the temperature of the lunar surface at 500-meter horizontal scales. Diviner data sets are produced by the Diviner Science Team at the University of California, Los Angeles.
