TES Level 2
Entry Title: TES/Aura L2 Summary Profiles V006

Entry ID: TL2SUM_6
Radiation Budget
Description

The Level 2 Summary Product is essentially a subset of all of the L2 Standard or Special Observation Products generated for a run combined into one product. Specifically, what is not included in the Summary Product are the matrices such as the Averaging Kernels and Error Covariances that take up a majority of the data volume of the Standard Products (including the Ancillary Product).These subset of data for each species and of ancillary data are combined into one file. Besides having fewer data fields per species, in addition, the number of pressure levels the data are reported on is less: only the standard 15 UARS pressure levels plus the surface or cloud top.To facilitate sharing data products between all Aura platform science teams, the organization of the L2 Summary Product also conforms to specifications dictated in the HDF-EOS Aura File Format Guidelines (Craig, et al). These guidelines lay down the basic file format and data format specifications for all L2 standard products. The L2 Summary Product though only contains a subset of all of the data and geolocation fields identified as TES parameters.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
