List of Scientific Changes: New quality monitoring metadata has been added to the code, as suggested by the science team. Each basin now uses a predetermined latitude/longitude box of 1°x1° and calculates the average, standard deviation, and variance of the points in that box. The resolution of the product is 0.25°x0.25°, resulting in 25 points per calculation.
