AIMS variable description: 

A priori value of nu (modified gamma distrib. width parameter) supplied to the RVOD retrieval algorithm, selected based on cloud type and location as obtained from 2B-CLDCLASS. (This IO retrieval assumes the entire column is ice-only.)

Fill values:
0.0: Clear column (2B-GEOPROF)
-6.666: Optical depth zero, diverged, bad, or missing (2B-TAU)
-7.777: Unphysical, bad, or missing reflectivity factor Z\' (2B-GEOPROF)
-8.888: Cloud scenario not determined, invalid class, or class bad/missing (2B-CLDCLASS)
