Entry ID: TL1BSOH_4
Tropospheric Composition
Description

Tropospheric Emission Spectrometer (TES) Aura L1B Spectra Special Observation High Resolution (TL1BSOH) data contain radiometric calibrated spectral radiances and their corresponding noise equivalent spectral radiances (NESR). The geolocation, quality, and some engineering data are also provided. Each L1B data file contains data from a single TES orbit starting from the South Pole Apex. A Nadir sequence with in the TES Global Survey is two low resolution scans over the same ground locations. The Nadir standard product consists of four files, where each file is composed of the Global Survey Nadir observations from one of four focal planes for a single orbit, (i.e. 72 orbit sequences). The Global Survey Nadir observations currently only use a single set of filter mix. A Limb sequence with in the TES Global Survey is three high-resolution scans over the same limb locations. The Limb standard product will consist of four files, where each file will be composed of the GlobalSurvey Limb observations from one of four focal planes for a single orbit, (i.e. 72 orbit sequences). The Global Survey Limb observations use a repeating sequence of filter wheel positions. Special Observations can only be scheduled during the 9 or 10 orbit gaps in the Global Surveys, and are conducted in any of three basic modes: stare, transect, step-and-stare. The mode used depends on the science requirement. See http://tes.jpl.nasa.gov/instrument/specialobservations/ for details.Details of the format of this product can be found in the TES Data Products Specifications (DPS) which is available from the LaRC ASDC site: https://eosweb.larc.nasa.gov/project/tes/DPS.
