AN OVERVIEW OF MODIS LAND SCIENCE PRODUCTS

NASA's Moderate-Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) is an earth-imaging instrument now aboard both the Terra and Aqua polar-orbiting spacecrafts. Each instrument acquires near-daily whole-earth images in 36 spectral bands for global observation of oceans, atmosphere, and land. Global land products, which are designed primarily for global-scale climate and carbon balance models, are grouped into three product suites:

This talk presents an overview of these products and their applications.
