DATA HOLDINGS

  • As of present, the ATDD at GES DISC is subsettingoperationally certain MODIS/Aqua Radiances and Atmospheres data alongCloudSat and MLS/Aura ground track.  (Skip down to the full list)
  • There are separateCloudSat-, and MLS/Aura-collocated subsets of MODIS/Aqua data.
  • The CloudSat-collocated MODIS/Aqua subsets are provided in two flavors: narrow and wide swaths, correspondingly of about +-5 km and +-100 km along CloudSat track.  Subset are the geolocations,the 1-km and the 250-m MODIS/Aqua Level 1B calibrated radiances, and Atmospheres Level 2 products: Aerosols, Water Vapor, Clouds, Profiles, and the CLoud Mask.
  • The MLS-collocated MODIS/Aqua subsets are only +-100 km.  Calibrated radiances are not subset.  Subset are Geolocations,and the MODIS/Aqua Atmospheres products listed above.

 

  • Naming Convention
    • The CloudSat-collocated MODIS/Aqua subsets are prefixed with "MAC" , and then cary the familiar characters from MODIS/Aqua.  "S0" and "S1" denote the narrow and the wide swath subsets, correspondingly.
    • The MLS-collocated MODIS/Aqua subsets are prefixed with "MAM" , and then cary the familiar characters from MODIS/Aqua.
    • The Data Type Short Name from the table below appears as prefix to the corresponding file.
