Short Name:
OCO2_Att

OCO-2 Level 0 spacecraft attitude data, Retrospective Processing V10r (OCO2_Att) at GES DISC

Version 10r is the current version of the data set. Older versions will no longer be available and are superseded by Version 10r. Version 8r is the current version of the data set. Version 7r has been superseded by Version 8r. The Orbiting Carbon Observatory is the first NASA missiondesigned to collect space-based measurements of atmospheric carbon dioxidewith the precision, resolution, and coverage needed to characterize theprocesses controlling its buildup in the atmosphere. The OCO-2 project uses the LEOStar-2 spacecraft that carries a single instrument. It incorporates three high-resolution spectrometers that make coincident measurements ofreflected sunlight in the near-infrared CO2 near 1.61 and 2.06 micrometers and inmolecular oxygen (O2) A-Band at 0.76 micrometers . Each band has 1016 spectralelements.This product contains pointing angles of the spacecraft for each orbit.It is generated using the following input data:+ APID 20 telemetry+ Orbit Boundary File.It is essential in generating the Geolocations of the science data.This is the retrospective processing where the calibration data is estimated from the full timeseries of data (before, during, and after the measurements), and is expected to be of slightly higher quality.
