Abstract: MODIS was launched aboard the Aqua satellite on May 4, 2002 (1:30 pm
equator crossing time) as part of NASA's Earth Observing System (EOS)
mission. MODIS with its 2330 km viewing swath width provides almost
daily global coverage. It acquires data in 36 high spectral resolution
bands between 0.415 to ... View entire text
