AIMS variable description: 

RVOD retrieved profile of IWC, obtained by performing a radar/VOD retrieval assuming the entire profile is ice, zeroing out the portion of the profile with temperatures warmer than Temp_max_mixph_K (presumed to be pure liquid), and linearly scaling (with temperature) the portion of the profile with temperatures between Temp_min_mixph_K and Temp_max_mixph_K (presumed to be a mixture of ice and liquid).

Fill values:
0: Clear column (2B-GEOPROF)
-3333: Solution negative (2B-IWC-RVOD)
-4444: Solution diverged (2B-IWC-RVOD)
-6666: Optical depth zero, diverged, bad, or missing (2B-TAU)
-7777: Unphysical, bad, or missing reflectivity factor Z\' (2B-GEOPROF)
-8888: Cloud scenario not determined, invalid class, or class bad/missing (2B-CLDCLASS)
-9999: Bad or missing temperature (ECMWF-AUX)
