act.corrections.correct_ceil

act.corrections.correct_ceil(obj, fill_value=1e-07, var_name='backscatter')[source]

This procedure corrects ceilometer data by filling all zero and negative values of backscatter with fill_value and then converting the backscatter data into logarithmic space.

Parameters:
  • obj (Dataset object) – The ceilometer dataset to correct. The backscatter data should be in linear space.

  • var_name (str) – The variable name of data in the object.

  • fill_value (float) – The fill_value to use. The fill_value is entered in linear space.

Returns:

obj (Dataset object) – The ceilometer dataset containing the corrected values.
