OCO-2 Level 2 bias-corrected XCO2 and other select fields from the full-physics retrieval aggregated as daily files, Retrospective processing V7r.

This dataset was downloaded from GES DISC Dataset.

The OCO-2 Lite files contain bias-corrected XCO2 along with other select fields aggregated as daily files. The Orbiting Carbon Observatory is the first NASA mission designed to collect space-based measurements of atmospheric carbon dioxide with the precision, resolution, and coverage needed to characterize the processes controlling its buildup in the atmosphere. The OCO-2 project uses the LEOStar-2 spacecraft that carries a single instrument. It incorporates three high-resolution spectrometers that make coincident measurements of reflected sunlight in the near-infrared CO2 near 1.61 and 2.06 micrometers and in molecular oxygen (O2) A-Band at 0.76 micrometers.

This dataset was used in the paper "FRK: An R Package for Spatial and Spatio-Temporal Prediction with Large Datasets" to perform global prediction of column-averaged Carbon Dioxide from OCO-2.
