MCD19A1CMGO v061

MODIS/Terra+Aqua Surface Reflectance (Bands 8-12) from MAIAC, Daily L3 Global 0.05 Deg CMG


PI: Alexei Lyapustin

The MAIAC data products have been released with the caveat that the reprocessing for the full mission is expected to continue through spring 2023.

Description

The MCD19A1CMGO Version 6.1 data product is a Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) Terra and Aqua combined Multi-Angle Implementation of Atmospheric Correction (MAIAC) Surface Reflectance Level 3 (Bands 8-12) product produced daily in a 0.05 degree (5,600 meters at the equator) Climate Modeling Grid (CMG). The MCD19A1CMGO product is corrected for atmospheric gases and aerosols using a new MAIAC algorithm that is based on a time series analysis and a combination of pixel- and image-based processing. The MODIS MAIAC products provide an estimate of the surface spectral reflectance, also referred to as Bidirectional Reflectance Factor (BRF), as it would be measured at ground-level in the absence of atmospheric scattering or absorption. The Surface Reflectance dataset includes BRF, BRF normalized to a fixed geometry of solar zenith angle at 45° and nadir view, and Nadir Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function (BRDF)-Adjusted Reflectance (NBAR) normalized to the nadir view and local sun angle at 1:30 pm.

The MCD19A1CMGO MAIAC Surface Reflectance product for ocean bands includes 19 Science Dataset (SDS) layers: BRF for bands 8-12, BRF normalized to a fixed geometry for bands 8-12, NBAR for bands 8-12, Quality Assessment (QA) bits, cosine of solar zenith angle, cosine of view zenith angle, and relative azimuth angle. A low-resolution browse is also included.
