Entry Title: TES/Aura L2 Summary Profiles Special Observation V007

Entry ID: TL2SUMS_7
Tropospheric Composition
Description

TL2SUMS_7 is the Tropospheric Emission Spectrometer (TES)/Aura Level 2 Atmospheric Temperatures Limb Version 7 data product. TES was an instrument aboard NASA's Aura satellite and was launched from California on July 15, 2004. Data collection for TES is complete. The satellite flew at an altitude of 705 km in an orbit that took it near Earth's North and South Poles. Each orbit, the spacecraft advanced 22° westward and, after 233 orbits (16 days) it was back to its starting point. This product contains atmospheric vertical profile estimates, along with retrieved surface temperature, cloud effective optical depth, column estimates, quality flags, and a priori constraint vectors.
