Summary
Abstract: The format of this daily data set follows the File Format Specifications
NASA-AMES used in many international campaigns on atmospheric soundings.
Each data set is identified by SS followed by the date (i.e. SS010289
represents the data set of February 1st, 1989).
Primary variables are the vertical profiles of the following parameters:
- Squared Range corrected Lidar ... View entire text

Quality The error related to the extinction to
backscattering ratio (K) is a function of the optical depth. For thin
aerosol layers (optical depth from 2E-2 to 5E-2) errors as large as
100% are possible for the retrieved values of K. For optical depths
larger than 1E-1 errors of the order of 20% or smaller can be expected.
