MODIS/Aqua Surface Reflectance 8-Day L3 Global 500m SIN Grid V006
Entry ID: MYD09A1


Summary
Abstract: The MYD09A1 Version 6 product provides an estimate of the surface spectral reflectance of AQUA MODIS Bands 1-7 corrected for atmospheric conditions such as gasses, aerosols, and Rayleigh scattering. Provided along with the seven 500 m reflectance bands are a Quality layer and four observation bands. For each pixel, a value is selected from all the acquisitions within the 8-day composite period. The criteria for the pixel choice include cloud and solar zenith. When several acquisitions meet the criteria the pixel with the minimum channel 3 (blue) value is used. Validation at stage 3 has been achieved for all MODIS Surface Reflectance products.

Purpose: Science Research
