Description

CAL_LID_L1-Standard-V4-51 is the Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observation (CALIPSO) Lidar Level 1B profile data, Version 4-51 data product. This data product was collected using the Cloud-Aerosol Lidar with Orthogonal Polarization (CALIOP) instrument. The CALIOP 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 measurements.
