OCO-2 Level 0 spacecraft attitude data V10 (OCO2_Att) at GES DISC

Metadata Updated: December 7, 2023

Version 10 is the current version of the data set. Older versions will no longer be available and are superseded by Version 10.

The Orbiting Carbon Observatory is the first NASA missiondesigned to collect space-based measurements of atmospheric carbon dioxidewith the precision, resolution, and coverage needed to characterize theprocesses controlling its buildup in the atmosphere. The OCO-2 project uses the LEOStar-2 spacecraft that carries a single instrument. It incorporates three high-resolution spectrometers that make coincident measurements ofreflected sunlight in the near-infrared CO2 near 1.61 and 2.06 micrometers and inmolecular oxygen (O2) A-Band at 0.76 micrometers . Each band has 1016 spectralelements.This product contains pointing angles of the spacecraft for each orbit.It is generated using the following input data:+ APID 20 telemetry+ Orbit Boundary File.It is essential in generating the Geolocations of the science data.
