MODIS/Aqua Calibrated Radiances 5-Min L1B Swath 1km V006

Metadata Updated: August 9, 2018

The MODIS/Aqua Calibrated Radiances 5-Min L1B Swath 1km (MYD021KM) product contains calibrated and geolocated at-aperture radiances for 36 discrete bands located in the 0.4 to 14.4 micron region of electromagnetic spectrum. These data are generated from the MODIS Level 1A scans of raw radiance which during processing converted to geophysical units of W/(m^2 um sr). In addition, the Earth Bi-directional Reflectance Distribution Function (BRDF) may be determined for the solar reflective bands (1-19, 26) through knowledge of the solar irradiance (e.g., determined from MODIS solar diffuser data, and from the target illumination geometry). Additional data are provided including quality flags, error estimates and calibration data.

Visible, shortwave infrared, and near infrared measurements are only made during the daytime, while radiances for the thermal infrared region (bands 20-25, 27-36) are measured continuously.

The Shortname for this product is MYD021KM and is stored in the Earth Observing System Hierarchical Data Format (HDF-EOS).

Environmental information derived from MODIS L1B measurements will offer a comprehensive and unprecedented look at terrestrial, atmospheric, and ocean phenomenology for a wide and diverse community of users throughout the world.
