Summary
Abstract: This is the wide-swath MODIS/Aqua subset along CloudSat field of view track.
The goal of the wide-swath subset is to select and return MODIS data that are
within +-100 km across the CloudSat track. I.e. the resultant MODIS subset
swath is sought to be about 200 km cross-track. However, the original MYD06_L2
has data of 5- and 1-km pixels. Thus, MAC06S1 cross-track width is 41- and
201-pixels, ... View entire text
