Upgrades to the OCO-2 Full Physics Lite files

GES DISC and JPL have replaced the available collection of OCO-2 Lite files of the Full Physics retrieval

Upgrades to the OCO-2 Full Physics Lite files

OCO-2 Lite files containing Full Physics retrievals of column amounts (xCO2). Average for 2015, using warning levels better than (i.e., below) 10.

Upgrades to the OCO-2 Full Physics Lite files

The NASA Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center (GES DISC) and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) have replaced the available collection of Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 (OCO-2) Lite files of the Full Physics retrieval, "OCO2_L2_Lite_FP",  http://disc.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/datacollection/OCO2_L2_Lite_FP_7r.html

The new files can be recognized by the "B7305Br” string in the file names.

In essence, the upgrades include: 

  • Surface geopotential height is corrected for the period October 2014 - May 2015. 
  • A minor error was corrected in the way the footprint bias correction was applied.
  • Data with a wider range of warning levels are now included.
  • One data file now contains data strictly within one UTC day. 

 More details on the new content of the Full Physics Lite files can be found in the Lite file documentation.
