AIMS variable description: 

A priori value of log(D_g) supplied to the RVOD retrieval algorithm. (This IO retrieval assumes the entire column is ice-only.) The value is selected based on the cloud type and location as obtained from 2B-CLDCLASS. [log = base-10 logarithm]

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)
