CALIPSO LIDAR L1 V4.00 Product Retirement

Wednesday, October 11, 2017

The CALIPSO mission announces that as of 11 October 2017 the Version 4.00 Lidar Level 1 product will no longer be publicly available from the Atmospheric Science Data Center (ASDC) at NASA Langley Research Center. This dataset, which spans from June 13, 2006 to May 31, 2015, was replaced by the recently released Version 4.10 Lidar Level 1 data. CALIPSO users are strongly encouraged to use this newer version of the Lidar Level 1 dataset, which is now available on all currently existing standard order tools as well as the CALIPSO Search/Sub-setter application.
