"The Microwave Limb Sounder (MLS) experiments measure naturally-occurring microwave thermal emission from the limb (edge) of Earth's atmosphere to remotely sense vertical profiles of atmospheric gases, temperature, pressure, and cloud ice. The overall objective of these experiments is to provide information that will help improve our understanding of Earth's atmosphere and global change. "
From the JPL Microwave Limb Sounder (MLS) Web Site

"The MLS Level 2 data are stored in the Aura-specific implementation of the HDF-EOS (v5) format, as described in the HDF-EOS Aura File Format Guidelines1 . Briefly, the MLS standard products are stored in individual Level 2 Geophysical Product files (L2GP) within appropriately named swaths. The files contain vertical profiles of geophysical parameters on a fixed set of pressures (typically spaced at 6 surfaces per decade change in pressure)."

From "A short guide to the use and interpretation of EOS Aura Microwave Limb Sounder v1.5 Level 2 data" by Nathaniel Nathaniel Livesey

This site provides a function for reading level 2 data, using the IDL language.
