MODIS Airborne Simulator Terra-aqua eXperiment 2002

Metadata Updated: August 9, 2018

The Terra-aqua eXperiment 2002 (TX-2002) was conducted from the former Kelly AFB in San Antonio, Texas from November 20 to December 13, 2002 to assess MODerate resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) and Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) L1B and science products from the Terra and Aqua satellites. MODIS and AIRS science products including earth-atmosphere radiance, atmospheric profiles (temperature and moisture), cloud top heights, cloud coverage or mask, and cloud particle phase are being collected globally and studied for signatures of Global Climate change under NASA's Earth Science Enterprise initiative.
