CALIPSO Lidar Level 1B profile data, V4-10

Version V4-10 eng
  • Abstract
    CAL_LID_L1-Standard-V4-10 data are Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observation (CALIPSO) Lidar Level 1B profile data, standard. The highest quality data products generated by the Data Management System (DMS) are referred to as Standard data products. These products have a 2-4 day latency to incorporate the global meteorological and other reference products. Night and Day orbit segments are written to separate data files. A full set of browse images, including orbit track maps, are generated and posted to the science data web site. Standard data products are recommended for research studies and journal publications. The lidar Level 1B data product contains a half orbit (day or night) of calibrated and geolocated lidar profiles. The product contains data from all non-diagnostic instrument modes including nominal science, depolarization gain ratio calibration, and boresight alignment. The lidar Level 1B product contains additional data not found in the Level 0 lidar input file, including post processed ephemeris data, celestial data, and converted payload status data. 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 the international A-Train 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.
