MLS/Aura Level 3 Daily Binned Methyl Chloride (CH3Cl) Mixing Ratio on Assorted Grids V005 (ML3DBCH3CL) at GES DISC

Metadata Updated: December 7, 2023

ML3DBCH3CL is the EOS Aura Microwave Limb Sounder (MLS) daily binned on various vertical grids product for methyl chloride (CH3Cl) derived from radiances measured by the 640 GHz radiometer. The data version is 5.1. Data coverage is from August 2, 2005 to current. Spatial coverage is near-global (-82 to +82 degrees latitude) at a spatial resolution of 4 degrees latitude by 5 degrees longitude. The recommended useful vertical range is between 147 and 4.64 hPa, and the vertical resolution ranges between 4-6 km in the lower stratosphere and 8-10 km above 14 hPa. Users of the ML3DBCH3CL data product should read chapter 4 and section 3.3 of the EOS MLS Level 2 Version 5 Quality Document for more information.

The data files are archived in the netCDF4 format, which is also compatible with HDF5 readers and tools. Each file contains six group objects: lat-lon map vs pressure, lat vs pressure zonal mean, lat-lon map vs "potential temperature", lat vs "potential temperature" zonal mean, "equivalent latitude" vs "potential temperature" zonal mean, and vortex average vs "potential temperature". Each group has a set of data (average, min, max, std dev, rms) and geolocation fields, grid attributes, and metadata.
