This is the MODIS/Aqua subset along MLS field of view track. The goal of the
subset is to select and return MODIS data that are within +-100 km across the
MLS track. I.e. the resultant MODIS subset swath is sought to be about 200 km
cross-track. However, the original MYD07_L2 has data of 5-km pixels. Thus,
MAM07S0 cross-track width is 41-pixels. Along-track, all MODIS ... pixels from the
original product are preserved.
In the standard product, the level-2 MODIS Temperature and Water Vapor Profile
Product MYD07_L2 consists of 30 gridded parameters related to atmospheric
stability, atmospheric temperature and moisture profiles, total atmospheric
water vapor, and total ozone. All of these parameters are produced for both
daytime and nighttime conditions at 5-km pixel resolution when at least 9 FOVs
are cloud free.
"Two day repeat observations with a repeat orbit pattern every 16 days. The
locales where the ascending and descending modes are close or intersect can
have two observations per day."
(The shortname for this product is MAM07S0).
