Description

The CAL_LID_L15_Exp-ValStage1-V3-50 expedited data product is a continuous segment of calibrated, geolocated, cloud-cleared, and spatially averaged profiles of lidar attenuated backscatter and aerosol extinction. These profiles are derived via a synthesis of the CALIPSO Lidar Level 1B profile and Lidar Level 2 5km aerosol profile products with the Lidar Level 2 Vertical Feature Mask product. This Lidar Level 1.5 expedited data product is derived using expedited versions of these levels 1B and level 2 data products and files are 90 minutes in duration.
