MODIS/Terra Clouds 5-Min L2 Swath 1km and 5km - NRT
Entry ID: MOD06_L2_6.1NRT


Summary
Abstract: The level-2 MODIS cloud product consists of cloud optical and physical parameters. These parameters are derived using remotely sensed infrared, visible and near infrared solar reflected radiances. MODIS infrared channel radiances are used to derive cloud top temperature, cloud top height, effective emissivity, cloud phase (ice vs. water, opaque vs. non-opaque), and cloud fraction under both ...

Quality Overall NRT products match to operational with some expected minor differences from use of different ancillaries and ephemeris. There aren't any data gaps or data artifacts. Information on comparison of C6.1 Operational and NRT Atmospheric Products is posted at: http://lance.modaps.eosdis.nasa.gov/data_products/comparison.html.
