CAL_LID_L1-ValStage1-V3-02_V3-02

CALIPSO Lidar Level 1B Profile data, Validated Stage 1 V3-02

Version V3-02 eng
  • Abstract
    CAL_LID_L1-ValStage1-V3-02 data are Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observation (CALIPSO) Lidar Level 1B profile data. The CALIPSO Lidar Level 1B data product contains a half orbit (day or night) of calibrated and geolocated single-shot (highest resolution) lidar profiles, including 532 nm and 1064 nm attenuated backscatter and depolarization ratio at 532 nm. The product released contains data from nominal science mode measurement. The CALIPSO Lidar Level 1B product also contains additional data not found in the Level 0 lidar input file, including post processed ephemeris data, celestial data, and converted payload status data. Version 3.02 represents a transition of the Lidar, IIR, and WFC processing and browse code to a new cluster computing system. No algorithm changes were introduced and very minor changes were observed between V3.01 and V3.02 as a result of the compiler and computer architecture differences. 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.
