Create a "O3 amount", "Reflectivity", "Radiative Cloud Fraction", and "Cloud Pressure" PLOT with a DSCOVR EPIC L2

Description:
The EPIC instrument consists of a 2048x2048 charge-coupled device (CCD) attached to a 30cm f/9.6 Cassegrain telescope. Using a filter wheel, it samples at 10-channel narrow-band ranges from 317.5nm to 780nm. These bands provide the ability to generate a variety of science products, including ozone, sulfur dioxide, aerosols, vegetation, and cloud height.

The code script provided plots four parameters which include ozone, reflectivity, radiative cloud fraction, and cloud pressure.
