Abstract: Data granules contain approximately 23 minutes (1/4 orbit) and include the surface elevation, surface roughness assuming no slope, surface slope assuming no roughness and geodetic and atmospheric corrections for the range at the full 40/sec resolution.

Purpose: Scientists investigating surface elevation, slope, reflection, and other surface characteristics can use the GLAH06 data. The data values were used in the creation of the surface-specific altimeter products (GLAH12-15). Each GLAH06 file was created from an equivalent GLA06 binary formatted file. Users that want to access the data used to create the GLAH06 values can use the equivalent GLAHxx files for the GLAxx files as shown in the provenance metadata for the history that created the GLA06.
