The Atmospheric Science Data Center (ASDC) at NASA Langley Research Center, in collaboration with the CALIPSO mission, announces the release of new expedited CALIPSO Lidar and IIR products (Level 1 and Level 2), and WFC products (Level 1). Expedited data products are intended to support near real-time operations and measurement field campaigns. These daily products have a processing latency of 12 hours (±6 hours) from data acquisition. They use the most current (yet not definitive) attitude and calibration information, ancillary and meteorological data available at the time of processing. Therefore, science investigations to be published in research journals should use the higher quality standard data products rather than the expedited data products. The expedited products will be available for a period of 30 days, at which time the standard products will be available. CALIPSO expedited data are also available from the ICARE on-line archive, along with the standard products.
