Terra band 10 EV-based RVS

Feb
21

Terra band 10 EV-based RVS: The EV-based m1 and RVS algorithm currently used for bands 8 & 9 was extended to band 10. A special LUT was delivered to OBPG for testing. The results demonstrated that the LUT produced very similar results to the correction applied by OBPG. It was recommended that the new band 10 approach be implemented in the official Collection 6 LUT. A new LUT was delivered containing this update (6.1.14.22_OC) prior to the start of an OBPG reprocessing. MCST will begin a similar implementation in the forward C6 to eventually synchronize the OBPG and forward C6 LUTs.

QA Status for Terra MODIS Band 30 Detector 7

Sep
11

Terra MODIS band 30 detector 7 (production order) had a sudden jump on March 21, 2013 and NEdT started to exceed the specification (0.25) on May 4, 2013. Analysis shows that the NEdT exceeds the specification (0.25) for more than 20% of scans within a granule consistently for a period of two weeks, meeting the criteria for a MODIS TEB detector QA change from “Operational” to “Noisy”. MCST has implemented a QA status change for Terra MODIS band 30 detector 7 from “Operational” to “Noisy” in both the C5 & C6 LUT.
