Summary
Abstract: ML2CO_NRT is the EOS Aura Microwave Limb Sounder (MLS) Near-Real-Time (NRT) product for water vapor (H2O). This product contains daily H2O profiles taken from the 190 GHz band. The most recent 7 days of data are available. Spatial coverage is near-global (-82?? to +82?? latitude), with each profile spaced 1.5?? or ~165 km along the orbit track (roughly 15 orbits per day).

Quality The MLS NRT data are not as accurate as the retrievals that constitute the standard MLS products, but nevertheless the results are of scientific use and track the standard MLS products with reasonable fidelity. NRT water vapor profiles are only recommended for scientific use at pressure levels from 316 hPa to 0.00215 hPa.
