Abstract: The MODIS 250-meter Surface Reflectance product (MYD09GQK) is a
two-band product computed from MODIS level-1B land bands 1 and 2
(centered at 648 nanometers and 858 nanometers, respectively). The
product is an estimate of the surface spectral reflectance for each
band as it would measure at ground level, if there were no atmospheric
scattering or absorption. A correction scheme reducing the ... View entire text

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.

Description: LANCE provides access to near real-time data (<3 hours from observation) from AIRS, AMSR-E, MLS, MODIS, and OMI instruments. Users, operational agencies and researchers utilize these products for a wide range of purposes (weather forecasting to monitoring natural hazards). These users often need data much sooner than routine science processing allows and are willing to trade science quality for timely access. Science quality products (28-48hrs latency) should be used for latency independent research and applications.
