MODIS/Aqua 8-Day Clear Sky Radiance Bias Daily L3 Global 1Deg Zonal Bands

Metadata Updated: August 9, 2018

The MODIS/Aqua 8-Day Clear Sky Radiance Bias Daily L3 Global 1Deg Zonal Bands (MYDCSR_B) product consists of 1-degree zonal mean clear-sky biases (observed minus calculated radiance differences) and associated statistics for bands 31 and 33-36 for each day from the previous eight-day period. Zonal means (5-zone moving averages) are created from the eight-day, 25-km radiance differences for daytime land, nighttime land, and ocean data separately. Day and night land data are combined south of -60 degrees latitude due to poor clear-sky sampling and the difficulty of discriminating between clear and cloudy conditions in this region. The zonal mean biases are utilized to correct clear-sky radiance calculations in the cloud top pressure (CO2 slicing) algorithm. The files are in Hierarchical Data Format(HDF).
