In way of explanation, the level-lb processing level is generally composed of raw counts with information necessary for calibration or counts converted to sensor units [e.g., brightness temperature (BT) and reflectance]; the GAC data described in "The Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer" section are considered to be at the level-lb processing level.
