User Question: Which of GEDI's eight beams are full power beams and which are coverage beams? Does that change between products?

Below is a list identifying which beams are coverage beams, and which are full power beams.

BEAM0000 is a Coverage beam
BEAM0001 is a Coverage beam
BEAM0010 is a Coverage beam
BEAM0011 is a Coverage beam
BEAM0101 is a Full power beam
BEAM0110 is a Full power beam
BEAM1000 is a Full power beam
BEAM1011 is a Full power beam

The beams do not change between the L1B-L2A-L2B products.
