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 MYD04_L2 has 10-km pixels. Thus, MAC04S1 cross-track width is 21 pixels, and the resultant cross-track swath width is about 200 km. Along-track, all MODIS pixels from the original product are preserved. In the standard product, the MODIS level-2 atmospheric aerosol product provides retrieved ambient aerosol optical properties (e.g., optical thickness and size distribution), mass concentration, look-up table derived reflected and transmitted fluxes, as well as quality assurance and other ancillary parameters, globally over ocean and near globally over land. Temporal_Resolution: "Two day repeat observations with a repeat orbit pattern every 16 days. The locales where the ascending and descending modes are close or intersect can have two observations per day." (The shortname for this product is MAC04S1).
