  • The Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observation (CALIPSO) was a joint-mission between NASA and the French space agency Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales. The main objectives of the mission was to supply unique data set of vertical cloud and aerosol profiles. This dataset contains cloud and aerosol lidar level 2 vertical feature mask version 3-30 data product describes the horizontal and vertical distribution of the cloud and the aerosol layers observed by the Cloud-Aerosol Lidar with Orthogonal Polarization (CALIOP). Version 3-30 was released in April, 2013. This version incorporates two ancillary input files updated from those used in versions 3-01 and 3-02: GEOS-5 processing system version 5.9.1 from version 5.2; and the enhanced Air Force Weather Authority (AFWA) Snow and Ice Datasets. The resulting changes are relatively small.

The main objectives of the mission was to supply unique data set of vertical cloud and aerosol profiles. This dataset contains cloud and aerosol lidar level 2 1km cloud layer version 3-01 data product, which provides cloud data derived from Cloud-Aerosol Lidar with Orthogonal Polarization (CALIOP) Level 1B product at 1 km horizontal resolution, with full complement of diagnostic and quality assurance parameters. The data provides range of parameters including vertical profile of cloud layers, optical depth. In Version 3-01, L2 products use enhanced daytime calibration, improved cloud-aerosol discrimination algorithm with removal of a bug in the cloud clearing code, and the newly introduced cloud thermodynamic phase assessment algorithm.

The main objectives of the mission was to supply unique data set of vertical cloud and aerosol profiles. This dataset contains cloud and aerosol lidar level 1B version 3-01 data product, which contains processed Cloud-Aerosol Lidar with Orthogonal Polarization (CALIOP) Level 0 Data and post processed ephemeris data, celestial data and converted payload status data. In version 3-01, L1B product uses enhanced daytime calibration, updated laser energy calculation algorithm, corrections to the CALIPSO orbit tracks and updated parameters.

The main objectives of the mission was to supply unique data set of vertical cloud and aerosol profiles. This dataset contains cloud and aerosol lidar level 2 Aerosol Profile Version 3-02 data derived from Cloud-Aerosol Lidar with Orthogonal Polarization (CALIOP) Level 1B product with uniform horizontal resolution of 5 km and ancillary data. There are no layer descriptors included in the datasets, and the spatial distribution of the aerosol layers depends on the aerosol layer fraction and atmospheric volume description parameters. The aerosol backscatter and extinction coefficients are obtained through the CALIPSO Lidar Ratio selection algorithm. Version 3-02 marks the transition to a new cluster computing system without any changes in the algorithm used in version 3-01. The resulting impact on the products are very minor.
