CALIPSO Wide Field Camera Level 1A 125 m Native Science data, Expedite V3-02

  • Abstract
    CAL_WFC_L1_125m_Exp-Prov-V3-02 data are CALIPSO Wide Field Camera Level 1B 125m Native Science data.The primary Wide Field Camera Level 1B data products are calibrated radiance and bidirectional reflectance registered to an Earth-based grid centered on the Lidar ground track. During the normal operation, the WFC acquires science data only during the daylight portions of the CALIPSO orbits. The Wide Field Camera Level 1B 125 m Native Science data product provides WFC radiance and reflectance measurements across just the central 5 km swath at 125 m resolution. No spatial interpolation is performed.Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observations (CALIPSO) was launched on April 28, 2006 to study the impact of clouds and aerosols on the Earth's radiation budget and climate. It flies in formation with five other satellites in the international A-Train (PDF) constellation for coincident Earth observations. The CALIPSO satellite comprises three instruments, the Cloud-Aerosol LIdar with Orthogonal Polarization (CALIOP), the Imaging Infrared Radiometer (IIR), and the Wide Field Camera (WFC). CALIPSO is a joint satellite mission between NASA and the French Agency, CNES.
