Aqua MODIS surface reflectance band 1-2-1 data from the MYD09Q1 product over the western United States, November 25 - December 1, 2020.View full-size image
The MYD09Q1 Version 6.1 product provides an estimate of the surface spectral reflectance of Aqua Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) Bands 1 and 2, corrected for atmospheric conditions such as gasses, aerosols, and Rayleigh scattering. Provided along with the 250 meter (m) surface reflectance bands are two quality layers. For each pixel, a value is selected from all the acquisitions within the 8-day composite period. The criteria for the pixel choice include cloud and solar zenith. When several acquisitions meet the criteria the pixel with the minimum channel 3 (blue) value is used.

The sur_refl_state_250m and sur_refl_qc_250m layers are stored in an efficient bit-encoded manner. The unpack_sds_bits executable from the LDOPE Tools is available to the user community to help parse and interpret the QC layers.
The QA bit flags for the sur_refl_state_250m and sur_refl_qc_250m layers are provided in the User Guide in Tables 13 and 9 respectively.
