Aqua Band 1-4 EV-based RVS Implemented in Forward Production

Submitted by dolink on

Following several science tests and meetings with representatives from the science user community, the updated RVS algorithm for Aqua MODIS bands 1-4 is now in forward production. The change was implemented starting with granule 2016209.0000 (July 27, 2016 00h:00m:00s). This change removes the need for de-trending corrections, previously applied to Land products. Land products should not see a change in the data trends. Atmospheric products that include inputs from these bands may see a step change at the implementation time.
