CALIPSO Lidar Level 1.5 Profile Data

The CAL_LID_L15-Standard-V1-00 data product is a continuous segment of calibrated, geolocated, cloud-cleared, and spatially averaged profiles of lidar attenuated backscatter. These profiles are derived via a synthesis of the CALIPSO Lidar Level 1B profile and Lidar Level 2 5km aerosol profile products with the Lidar Level 2 Vertical Feature Mask product. The Lidar Level 1.5 standard data product is derived using standard V4.10 level 1B and V4.20 level 2 data products as input.
