Level 0 and Level 1 Documents

Level 0 Attitude

Level 0 Software Interface Specification that contains description of the Attitude data files 12/19/2014
Level 0 Ephemeris Level 0 Software Interface Specification that contains description of the Ephemeris data files 12/19/2014
Level 1A SIS  The Level 1A Software Interface Specification (SIS) contains numeration and brief description of all data objects in the Level 1A Sample and Pixel files. It is basically a file description.  3/17/2015
Level 1B SIS The Level 1B Software Interface Specification contains mostly numeration and brief description of all data objects in the Level 1B files. It is a file description. 3/17/2015
Level 1B ATBD This Algorithm Theoretical Basis Document (ATBD) describes the Level 1B data and the process used to transform the inherent instrument measurements (L1A data) into radiometrically calibrated spectra (L1B data). Brief instrument description included. 4/02/2015

Level 2 Documents 

Level 2 Full Physics Retrieval ATBD

The algorithm theoretical basis  used to retrieve the column-averaged CO2 dry air mole fraction XCO2 and other quantities included in the Level 2 (L2) Product from the spectra collected by the Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 (OCO-2). It identifies sources of input data, describes the physical theory and mathematical background underlying the use of this information in the retrievals; includes implementation details; and summarizes the assumptions and limitations of the adopted approach.  4/02/2014

Level 2 SIS

Software Interface Specification (SIS) containing numeration and brief description of all data objects. It is a technical file description.  3/17/2015
 IMAP-DOAS ATBD  The algorithm theoretical basis for the  IMAP-DOAS preprocessor, which is used for both screening of the official XCO2 product as well as for the retrieval of Solar-Induced Fluorescence from the 0.76 um O2 A-band. The IMAP-DOAS preprocessor, just as the ABO2 cloud screen, is implemented in the operational OCO-2 processing pipeline.  6/5/2014
IMAP-DOAS SIS
Software Interface Specification containing numeration and brief description of all data objects. It is a technical file description.  3/17/2015
Level 2 Diagnostic SIS
 Software Interface Specification containing numeration and brief description of all data objects. It is a technical file description.  3/17/2015
ABO2 Details the so-called Oxygen-A Band cloud screening algorithm, which will be one of two primary cloud screening tools implemented in the operational OCO-2 processing pipeline. 9/02/2014
