Quality Overall NRT products match to operational with some expected minor differences from use of different ancillaries and ephemeris. There aren't any data gaps or data artifacts. Information on comparison of C5 Operational and NRT Atmospheric Products is posted at: http://lance.modaps.eosdis.nasa.gov/data_products/comparison.html.
