Aqua LWIR C6.1 Post-Safe Mode Update

Submitted by dolink on

Aqua S/C transitioned to a safe mode on March 31st, 2022 (2022090). Post the S/C recovery, MODIS was brought back to Science Mode on April 14th, 2022 (2022104). Increase in the PV LWIR TEB electronic crosstalk was observed post-safe mode that resulted in increased striping in the L1B imagery. MCST developed a crosstalk correction algorithm and LUTs for the PV LWIR TEB to be applied Aqua MODIS C6.1 for forward production starting 2022208.0000 under version 6.2.3. Aqua MODIS C6.1 PV LWIR bands 27 thru 30 are expected to show reduced striping in Level-1B product.
