2B-GEOPROF-LIDAR

CloudSat Product Stats - Algorithm Developer Edition
The NASA CloudSat cloud profiling radar (CPR) and the Calipso Cloud-Aerosol Lidar with Orthogonal Polarization (CALIOP) generally fly in close coordination with one another.  2B-Geoprof-lidar product indicates the fraction of each GeoProf radar volume which contains a lidar cloud detection (detected using 5 km or shorter along track averaging), as well as a variety of summary values (such as the height of the highest detected cloud).   Details on the Geoprof-lidar can be found in Mace and Zhang (2014) and the Level 2 GEOPROF-LIDAR Product Process Description and Interface Control Document.
