MODIS/Aqua Near Real Time (NRT) Aerosol 5-Min L2 Swath - 3km
Entry ID: MYD04_3K_6NRT


Summary
Abstract: 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.In Collection 5, and earlier collections, there was only one ...

Quality Overall NRT products match to operational with some expected minor differences from use of different ancillaries and ephemeris. There aren't any data gaps or data artifacts. Information on comparison of C5 Operational and NRT Atmospheric Products is posted at: http://lance.modaps.eosdis.nasa.gov/data_products/comparison.html. Information on comparison of C6 Operational and NRT Atmospheric and Land Products is posted at: http://lance3.modaps.eosdis.nasa.gov/data_products/comparison_atmos... and http://lance3.modaps.eosdis.nasa.gov/data_products/comparison_land.....
