level 0 backup is a full backup of the datafiles
level 1 backup is a backup of all the change since the last level 0 backup or the last level 1 backup

rman> backup incremental level 1 database from scn xxxx;

this backups the database from that change number
> handy if archivelogs get lost and you need to apply them on a standby
