TEMPO Level 2
Entry Title: TEMPO cloud pressure and fraction (O2-O2 dimer) (UNVALIDATED)

Entry ID: TEMPO_CLDO4_L2_V01
Clouds
Description

O2-O2 cloud Level 2 files provide cloud information at TEMPO’s native spatial resolution, ~10 km^2 at the center of the Field of Regard (FOR), for individual granules. Each granule covers the entire North-South TEMPO FOR but only a portion of the East-West FOR. The files are provided in netCDF4 format, and contain information on effective cloud fraction (ECF), cloud optical centroid pressure (OCP), scene albedo, scene pressure, ancillary data used in calculation, and processing quality flags. The ECF is derived from reflectance at 466 nm. The OCP is derived from O2-O2 slant column density. The cloud retrieval uses Look Up Tables (LUTs) of reflectance and air mass factors as a function of geometry, surface albedo, surface pressure and cloud pressure. Please refer to the ATBD for details.
