AIMS variable description: 

Estimated fraction of a bin to location of surface within SurfaceHeightBin. Estimated Surface Height = SurfaceHeighBin + SurfaceHeightBin_fraction. This value is determined from the bin_fraction in the clutter estimation algorithm run in 1B-CPR. the faction may have values larger than +/- 1 when clutter estimation does not put the surface bin in the same place as estimated in the 2B GeoProf - which has selected the DEM elevation rather than the radar esitmated surface location.
