WIND Radio/Plasma Waves KP Data Caveat

The Ne variable contains a measure of the plasma density computed by neural networks. This value should always be considered WITH the E_AVERAGE information since it should track the plasma line visible on the dynamic spectrum. Sometimes, however, the neural network value will be unreliable and this is especially true when in proximity to the earth. Visual confirmation will indicate the presence of outliers, or regions where the network is fallible. The parameter Ne_quality may give some estimate of the reliability of the plasma density - but should be used in conjunction with visual inspection.
