MCST Meetings

2019

The MODIS/VIIRS 2019 Science Team Meeting was held November 18-21, 2019 at the The Hotel in College Park, MD. As part of the Science Team Meeting, MCST and VCST hosted a Calibration Workshop.

2018

The MODIS/VIIRS 2018 Science Team Meeting was held October 15-19, 2018 at the Sheraton in Silver Spring, MD. As part of the Science Team Meeting, MCST and VCST hosted a Calibration Workshop and the presentations are linked below.

The MODIS TEBs (20-25 and 27-30) for both Aqua and Terra show signs of electronic crosstalk.  This contamination can have an impact on Earth-view imagery.  A correction to the contamination can be derived from lunar imagery, and has been applied to Terra bands 27-30 in Collection 6.1.  The same methodology can be applied across each affected band in both Aqua and Terra MODIS.  We will assess the impact on Earth-view imagery for each of the remaining bands in Aqua and Terra MODIS.    

2017

After MCST delivered C6.1 LUT for Aqua and Terra MODIS, meeting to discuss the L1B reprocess with representatives from Land, OBPG, LDOPE, deep-blue, and aerosols. Included discussion on cross-calibration and polarization correction.

2016

MCST organized a meeting with land/atmosphere/ocean discipline representatives to discuss the implementation of Aqua bands 1-4 EV-based RVS in forward C6 production (2016/06/29)

Access the MODIS/VIIRS Science Team Meeting June 6-10 at Goddard's MODIS website. The MODIS/VIIRS 2016 Science Team Meeting was held June 6-10, 2016 at the Sheraton in Silver Spring, MD.

2015
