This is a false-color combination of Bands 2, 2, 1 from MYD09GQ showing a portion of Tile h22v10 over northern Madagascar acquired January 31, 2007.
The MODIS Surface Reflectance products provide 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.
MYD09GQ provides Bands 1 and 2 at a 250-meter resolution in a daily gridded L2G product in the Sinusoidal projection. Science Data Sets provided for this product include reflectance for Bands 1 and 2, a quality rating, observation coverage, and observation number. This product is meant to be used in conjunction with the MYD09GA where important quality and viewing geometry information is stored.
Version-5 MODIS/Aqua Surface Reflectance products are Validated Stage 2, meaning that accuracy has been assessed over a widely distributed set of locations and time periods via several ground-truth and validation efforts.
