MODIS/Terra Level 1B Subsampled Calibrated Radiance 5Km (MOD02SSH, Collection 004 and 005)
Entry ID: MOD02SSH
[ Update this Record ]
This data type (MOD02SSH) is a subsample from the MODIS Level 1B 1-km data.|
Every fifth pixel is taken from the MOD021KM product and written out to
MOD02SSH. The subsampling starts at the third frame, and at the third line.
Here, "frame" and "line" are naming conventions for pixels along and across the
scan, respectively. Since MOD02SSH is a subsampled Level 1B , many things from
the Level 1B documentation apply as well. That is, the MOD02SSH data product
contains calibrated and geolocated at-aperture radiances for 36 bands generated
from MODIS Level 1A scans of raw radiance (MOD 01). The radiance units are in
W/(m ^2 um sr). Additional data are provided including quality flags, error
estimates and calibration data. Visible, shortwave infrared (SWIR), and Near
Infrared (NIR) measurements are made during daytime only, while radiances for
Thermal Infrared (TIR) are measured continuously.
As it's parent, the MOD02SSH is in HDF-EOS format, and all metadata structures
and names are preserved for better convenience. However, some relevant changes
are made where appropriate. E.g. the dimension mappings are updated to reflect
the new one-to-one correspondance between the data and geolocations. The latter
is one of the most important differences: in the MOD02SSH, there is no offset
between data and geolocation pixels. The spatial coverage is almost similar to
that from MOD021KM (nominally it is 2330 by 2030 km, cross-track by
along-track, respectively). The MOD02SSH is produced continuously, and thus the
processing provides 2-day repeat observations of the Earth with a repeat orbit
pattern every 16 days.
(The shortname for this product is MOD02SSH)
The V004 Program Executable (PGE), for MODIS Level 1B products, has gone
through a series of revisions since the initial release of V4.0.0 in March of
2002. These include revisions to make it LINUX-compatible. The current version
is V4.0.9, which does not contain changes to the code that affect scientific
Below is a brief overview of changes that affect scientific output in previous
versions (V4.0.0 to V4.0.7) of PGE code. The MCST web site, listed in the URL
section of this DIF, has a more detailed version of this information, including
revisions that do not affect scientific output.
Significant changes to Look Up Tables (LUT) used in Level 1B processing have
occurred. These include revising the Response-versus-Scan Angle (RVS) LUTs from
listing the RVS corrections to listing the quadratic coefficients used in
making the RVS correction. The coefficients are now calculated by interpolating
on the granule collection time and the RVS corrections are then generated using
the interpolated coefficients. Previously used Emissive and Reflective RVS LUT
tables were eliminated and new ones introduced.
An incorrect comparison between RVS coefficients for Thermal Emissivity Bands
(TEB) and Reflective Solar Bands (RSB) was being made during the calculation of
the RVS coefficients. This was replaced with a comparison between TEB
coefficients. This error never resulted in an incorrect RVS correction but did
lead to re-calculating the coefficients for each detector in a thermal band
even if the coefficients were the same for all 10 detectors.
A destriping algorithm for Band 26 devised by C. Moeller was implemented. A new
time-dependent LUT was added which gives coefficients for a detector-specific
cross-talk correction based on the aggregated Band 5 radiances. The Band 26
scaled integers are adjusted by the Band 5 correction term, which is the
product of the Band 5 radiance times the ratio of the Band 5 to Band 26 scaling
factors times the LUT correction value for that detector. In addition a new
LUT which allows for a frame offset with regard to the Band 5 radiance was
added. A LUT which switches the correction off or on was also added.

Description: Near real-time (NRT) data are available from MODAPS for certain Aqua and Terra MODIS L0, L1, L2, L2G, and L3 products. Whereas the standard MODIS forward processing acquires 2-hour L0 files for Aqua and Terra from EDOS within 7-8 hours of real time, LANCE-MODIS acquires session-based L0 files from EDOS and the end of the session is available within 10-30 minutes after real time.
