Winter Cloud Experiment (WINCE) MODIS Airborne Simulator (MAS) Level-1B Data Products

Metadata Updated: August 9, 2018

The objective of the Winter Cloud Experiment (WINCE) campaign was to improve remote detection of thin cirrus and thick scattered clouds over snow and ice by studying their radiative properties. In addition WINCE will improve daytime remote detection of snow and ice through clear skies. 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 WINCE data are available from the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center Level 1 and Atmosphere Archive and Distribution System (GSFC/LAADS). The data cover the Upper Midwest, Great Lakes, New England, and Canada. Browse imagery of the data may be viewed from the MODIS Homepage at: .To order HDF formatted MAS data, link to the LAADS homepage at: .[Summary adapted from the GSFC/DAAC homepage]
