Abstract: GLAH15 contains the ocean elevation and small-scale roughness corrected for geodetic and atmospheric affects, calculated from algorithms fine-tuned for ocean returns. Data granules will contain 14 orbits of data over the oceans.

Purpose: GLAH15 contains ocean elevation and small-scale roughness data for researchers. Includes the geolocation, reflectance, and the geodetic, instrument, and atmospheric corrections. Parameters are at the full 40Hz resolution within the ICESat ocean mask. Each GLAH15 file was created from an equivalent GLA15 binary file. The data used to create the GLAH15 values are contained in the equivalent GLAHxx files for the GLAxx files. See the provenance metadata for the creation of the GLA15.
