The product includes full 532 nm and 1064 nm calibrated attenuated backscatter profiles at 5 times per second, and from 10 to -1 km, at 40 times per second. Also the calibration coefficient values and molecular backscatter profiles at once per second.
The purpose of this file is to calibrate the backscatter profile so that heights of planetary boundary layers, aerosol layers, and cloud can be subsequently determined. Data granules will contain approximately 190 minutes (2 orbits) of data. The level 1B global backscatter data (GLA07) will be provided at full instrument resolution.
