Terra MODIS Collection 6 Level 1B products will be reprocessed to correct for the long term drift observed in the reflectance trending of band 5. More details regarding the reprocessing schedule can be found here: http://ladsweb.nascom.nasa.gov/news/news080414.html
Also, information regarding this calibration change can be found here.
The presentations from the MODIS Science Team Meeting, April-2014 are available at the following location: http://modis.gsfc.nasa.gov/sci_team/meetings/201404/
Terra experienced an anomaly for B36/D7 beginning on 2014109.1405. Unlike previous instances of this unknown electronics/formatter anomaly, the detector behavior has not returned to normal.After 2 weeks continually being in the anomaly state, the decision was made to change the QA flag for this detector from 'Noisy' to 'Inoperable'. All Band 36 detectors are currently flagged as Noisy.
This QA change will be in effect from the LUT versions 184.108.40.206 (Collection 5) and 220.127.116.11 (Collection 6)
May 4, 2014 marked the 12 year anniversary of Aqua launch. The MODIS instrument on-board the Aqua spacecraft has well surpassed its design lifetime, but continues to provide valuable datasets for studies of Earth's land, ocean and atmosphere systems.
