PRODUCTS - CALIPSO STANDARD Browse Images - Version 3.02
As part of the A-Train / C-Train satellite constellation, CALIPSO provides profile observations of cloud and aerosols and
IR imagery of high cirrus clouds in this region. These measurements are combined with other A-Train / C-Train satellite measurements
and detailed observations from aircraft and ground-based instruments to better understand the formation and evolution of tropical clouds and how aerosols
affect the climate system.
Expedited CALIPSO browse images have a processing latency of about 12 hours. These products use degraded attitude information, a simple
calibration scheme based on climatology and are made available to support operational forecasting activities.
Version 3.02 valid date range is: November 1, 2011 thru February 28, 2013.
