MLS/Aura Level 3 Daily Binned Temperature on Assorted Grids V004 (ML3DBT) at GES DISC

Metadata Updated: July 17, 2020

ML3DBT is the EOS Aura Microwave Limb Sounder (MLS) daily binned on various vertical grids product for temperature derived from radiances measured by the 118 and 240 GHz radiometers. The data version is 4.2. 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 from 261 to 0.001 hPa, and the vertical resolution is between 3 and 6 km. Users of the ML3DBT data product should read chapter 4 and section 3.22 of the EOS MLS Level 2 Version 4 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 theta, lat vs theta zonal mean, equivalent lat vs theta zonal mean, and vortex average vs theta. Each group has a set of data (average, min, max, std dev, rms) and geolocation fields, grid attributes, and metadata.
