Hello everyone,

I made a request to download data (in hdf) from CALIPSO ( Lidar Level 2 Vertical Feature Mask (VFM) for a specific month in 2020, but when a open the hdf file, the profile_utc_time is 1.8011e+05 insted of a data with this format : 'yymmdd.ffffffff'.

Does anyone know how I can transform this data into the appropriate format? Thank you!
