MODIS/Terra Near Real Time (NRT) Surface Reflectance Daily L2G Global 250m SIN Grid (C005)
Entry ID: MOD09GQ


Summary
Abstract: The MODIS Near Real Time (NRT) Surface Reflectance products are an estimate of the surface spectral reflectance as it would be measured at ground level in the absence of atmospheric scattering or absorption. Low-level data are corrected for atmospheric gases and aerosols, yielding a level-2 basis for several higher-order gridded level-2 (L2G) and level-3 products. The MOD09GQ product provides Band 1 and 2 data at a 250-meter resolution in a daily gridded L2G product in the Sinusoidal projection. Science Data Sets provided for this product include reflectance for Bands 1 and 2, a quality rating, observation coverage, and observation number. This product is meant to be used in conjunction with the MOD09GA where important quality and viewing geometry information is stored.V005 Data Set Characteristics:Area: ~10 degrees x 10 degrees lat/long Image Dimensions: 4800 x 4800 rows/columns File Size: ~280 MB Resolution: 250 meters Projection: Sinusoidal Data Format: HDF-EOS Science Data Sets (SDS HDF Layers): 5V004 Data Set Characteristics (decommissioned):Area: ~10 degrees x 10 degrees lat/long Image Dimensions: 4800 x 4800 rows/columns File Size: ~280 MB Resolution: 250 meters Projection: Sinusoidal Data Format: HDF-EOS Science Data Sets (SDS HDF Layers): 5V003 Data Set Characteristics (decommissioned):Area: ~10 degrees x 10 degrees lat/long Image Dimensions: 4800 x 4800 rows/columns File Size: ~280 MB Resolution: 250 meters Projection: Sinusoidal Data Format: HDF-EOS Science Data Sets (SDS HDF Layers): 5V001 Data Set Characteristics (decommissioned):Area: ~10 degrees x 10 degrees lat/long Image Dimensions: 4800 x 4800 rows/columns File Size: ~280 MB Resolution: 250 meters Projection: Sinusoidal Data Format: HDF-EOS Science Data Sets (SDS HDF Layers): 5

Quality
Overall NRT products match to operational with some expected minor differences from use of different ancillaries and ephemeris. There aren't any data gaps or data artifacts.
