CALIPSO IIR L1 V2-00 Release Announcement

Wednesday, July 12, 2017

The Atmospheric Science Data Center (ASDC) at NASA Langley Research Center in collaboration with the CALIPSO mission announces the release of the following data product:
 

CAL_IIR_L1- Standard-V2-00

 

Version 2.00 of the IIR Level 1 product is the first major revision since the initial release in 2006. The calibration procedure has been adjusted to reduce known small seasonal calibration biases in the Northern Hemisphere, which were caused by thermal drifts synchronized with the elapsed time since the night-to-day transition.

 

The product is available from June 13, 2006 to current. The Version 1 standard and expedited data products will continue to be generated and provided to the public. There is no expedited version of the V2.00 IIR Level 1 planned for this release.

 

Information about this data product, including data availability, user documentation and quality statements, relevant links, sample read software, and tools for working with the data, etc. can be found at the following ASDC link: https://eosweb.larc.nasa.gov/project/calipso/calipso_table.
