New MLS v4.2 NRT Data Products Released
The science team for the Microwave Limb Sounder (MLS) on the Aura satellite and the Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center (GES DISC) are pleased to announce the release of the new MLS near-real-time (NRT) Version 4.2 data products. This upgrade increases the vertical height range of the NRT temperature product to provide additional coverage in the upper stratosphere/ lower mesosphere (up to 0.001 hectoPascals).
For those currently using the version 3 NRT products, it is expected to continue to be produced in parallel with version 4 NRT for the next several months, nominally until 1 April 2018, at which time the v3 NRT processing will be discontinued. Please contact us if you require more time to transition from the v3 to the v4 NRT stream.
Note that the version 4 NRT data will only be available in a forward processing stream and that older data will not be routinely re-processed. For users wishing to acquire a batch of v4 data for testing purposes, the MLS science team can provide on request a limited set of 'rolled-up' daily v4 NRT files from 25 September 2017 until present.
