MODIS/Terra+Aqua Land Aerosol Optical Depth Daily L2G Global 1km SIN Grid NRT

Metadata Updated: December 6, 2023

The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) Near Real Time (NRT) Combined Terra and Aqua Multi-Angle Implementation of Atmospheric Correction (MAIAC) Land Aerosol Optical Depth gridded Level 2 product (MCD19A2N) produced daily at 1 kilometer (km) pixel resolutions. The MCD19A2N product provides the atmospheric properties and view geometry used to calculate the MAIAC Land Surface Bidirectional Reflectance Factor (BRF) or surface reflectance, MCD19A1N product.

The Version 6.1 Level-1B (L1B) products have been improved by undergoing various calibration changes that include: changes to the response-versus-scan angle (RVS) approach that affects reflectance bands for Aqua and Terra MODIS, corrections to adjust for the optical crosstalk in Terra MODIS infrared (IR) bands, and corrections to the Terra MODIS forward look-up table (LUT) update for the period 2012 - 2017. A polarization correction has been applied to the L1B Reflective Solar Bands (RSB).
