Problems with Antarctic composites over the weekend

To users of AMRC's Antarctic composite imagery;

This past weekend there were problems in the real-time generation of the
Antarctic composites.  There were several missing composites (both infrared
and water vapor), and the infrared composites accidently included some
water vapor channel data in them rather than infrared data.

For the last 27 hours the composites have been generated correctly.  Some
modifications have been made to prevent this in the short-run.  Future
corrections will prevent this type of collision again in the long-run.

We apologize for any problems this has caused.
