MLS/Aura L1 Radiances from Digital Autocorrelators V003 ML1RADD at GES DISCEntry ID: GES_DISC_ML1RADD_V003
Abstract: ML1RADD is the EOS Aura Microwave Limb Sounder (MLS) product containing the level 1 radiances from the digital autocorrelators. The current version is 3.3. Data coverage is complete from August 8, 2004 to current. Spatial coverage is near-global (-82 deg. to +82 deg. latitude), files contain a full days worth of data (15 orbits). Users of the ML1RADD data product should read the 'Short Guide to ... the Use and Interpretation of v2.2x Level 1 Data' for additional information (http://mls.jpl.nasa.gov/data/MLS-Aura_L1Quality_v02.2_2007d152.pdf).
Users are encouraged to register with the MLS science team at https://mls.jpl.nasa.gov/forms/reguser.php to obtain updates and information about this data product.
The data are stored in the version 5 Hierarchical Data Format, or HDF5. Each file contains sets of HDF5 dataset objects (n-dimensional arrays) for each measurement. Included in the file are file attributes and metadata. There is one file per day.
