MLS/Aura L1 Radiances from Filter Banks for GHz V003 (ML1RADG) at GES DISC

Version 003 eng
  • Abstract
    ML1RADG is the EOS Aura Microwave Limb Sounder (MLS) product containing the level 1 radiances from the filter banks for the GHz radiometers. The data version is 3.3/3.4. Data coverage is from August 8, 2004 to current. Spatial coverage is near-global (-82 degrees to +82 degrees latitude), and files contain a full days worth of data (15 orbits). Users of the ML1RADG data product should read the 'A Short Guide to the Use and Interpretation of v3.3/v3.4 Level 1 Data' document for additional information. The data are stored in the version 5 Hierarchical Data Format, or HDF-5. Each file contains radiances and ancillary information written as HDF-5 dataset objects (n-dimensional arrays), along with file attributes and metadata.

    Use Constraints
    Effective use of EOS MLS Level 1 requires detailed knowledge of the instrument and its inner workings, and the Level 1 data should not be used prior to consulting with relevant members of the MLS Science Team in order to obtain requisite information.
