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