Acknowledgement: the QA monitoring tool project for Arctic Composite Satellite Imagery Products was led by Banghua Yan and Antonio Irving. Key members for the QA tool development include Jerry Guo, Sterling Spangler, and Clay Davenport. In particular, Jerry Guo was instrumental in the development of the QA tool, while Sterling Spangler contributed to the development of the monitoring tool's web pages. In addition to the efforts of the members above, Nancy Merckle provided assistance in assuring the QA tool complied with NOAA web design requirements.

Additional contributors include: Arctic Project Team led by Matthew Lazzara in Wisconsin University Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS) provides the Arctic composite algorithm and code for OSPO.
