CALIPSO Wide Field Camera Level 1B 1 km Registered Science data, Validated Stage 1 V3-02

Metadata Updated: December 7, 2023

CAL_WFC_L1_IIR-ValStage1-V3-02 data are Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observation (CALIPSO) Wide Field Camera (WFC) Level 1B 1 km Registered Science data, Validated Stage 1 Version 3-02. Data collection for this product is ongoing. Version 3.02 represents a transition of the Lidar, Imaging Infrared Radiometer (IIR), and WFC processing and browse code to a new cluster computing system. No algorithm changes were introduced, and very minor changes were observed between V3.01 and V3.02 as a result of the compiler and computer architecture differences. The primary WFC Level 1B data products are calibrated radiance and bidirectional reflectance registered to an Earth-based grid centered on the Lidar ground track. During the normal operation, the WFC acquires science data only during the daylight portions of the CALIPSO orbits. The WFC Level 1B 1 IIR Registered Science grid provides WFC data on the identical grid as the CALIPSO IIR data and is produced to facilitate the use of the WFC data in the IIR retrievals. CALIPSO was launched on April 28, 2006 to study the impact of clouds and aerosols on the Earth's radiation budget and climate. It flies in the international A-Train constellation for coincident Earth observations. The CALIPSO satellite is comprised of three instruments, the Cloud-Aerosol LIdar with Orthogonal Polarization (CALIOP), the Imaging Infrared Radiometer (IIR), and the WFC. CALIPSO is a joint satellite mission between NASA and the French Agency, CNES.
