MODIS/Aqua Surface Reflectance 8-Day L3 Global 250m SIN Grid V004Entry ID: MYD09Q14
Abstract: Decommissioned product.
The MODIS Surface Reflectance products are an estimate of the surface spectral reflectance as it would be measured at ground level in the absence of atmospheric scattering or absorption. Low-level data are corrected for atmospheric gases and aerosols, yielding a level-2 basis for several higher-order gridded level-2 (L2G) and level-3 products.
The MOD09Q1 product ... provides Band 1 and 2 data at a 250-meter resolution in an 8-day gridded level-3 product in the Sinusoidal projection. Each MOD09Q1 pixel contains the best possible L2G observation during an 8-day period as selected on the basis of high observation coverage, low view angle, the absence of clouds or cloud shadow, and aerosol loading. Science Data Sets provided for this product include reflectance values for Bands 1 and 2, and a quality rating.
