Abstract:
ML1OA is the EOS Aura Microwave Limb Sounder (MLS) product containing the level 1 orbit attitude and tangent point geolocation data. The current version is 2.2. Data coverage is complete from August 8, 2004 to current. Files contain a full days worth of data (15 orbits). Users of the ML1OA 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.
