Central Equatorial Pacific Experiment (CEPEX) MODIS Airborne Simulator (MAS) Level-1B Data Products

Metadata Updated: August 9, 2018

The objective of the Central Equatorial Pacific Experiment (CEPEX) campaign was to study the effects that Cirrus cloud radiative and surface evaporation properties have on limiting maximum surface temperature in the equatorial Pacific. The data was collected for the MODIS Airborne Simulator (MAS) project. This data will help define, develope, and test algorithms for the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) sensor which is a key sensor of NASA's Earth Observing System (EOS). The CEPEX data are available from the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center L1 and Atmosphere Archive and Distribution System (GSFC/LAADS). The data cover the central equatorial Pacific ocean only. Browse imagery of the data may be viewed from the MODIS Homepage at: http://mas.arc.nasa.gov/data/deploy_html/cepex_home.html To order HDF formatted MAS data, link to the LAADS homepage at: http://ladsweb.nascom.nasa.gov/data/MAS.html .
