Terra Product Descriptions: MYD07_L2

Last update: May 23, 2006

Data Set Short Name:
MYD07_L2

Data Set Long Name:
MODIS/Terra Temperature and Water Vapor Profiles 5-Min L2 Swath 5km

Platform:
Terra

Instrument:
MODIS

Product Description:
The MODIS Atmospheric Profile data product file MYD07_L2 onsists of several parameters: they are total-ozone burden, atmospheric stability, temperature and moisture profiles, and atmospheric water vapor. All of these parameters are produced day and night for Level 2 at 5x5 1-km pixel resolution when at least 9 FOVs are cloud free. The MODIS total-ozone burden is an estimate of the total-column tropospheric and stratospheric ozone content. The MODIS atmospheric stability consists of three daily Level 2 atmospheric stability indices. The Total Totals (TT), the Lifted Index (LI), and the K index (K) are each computed using the infrared temperature- and moisture-profile data, also derived as part of MYD07. The MODIS temperature and moisture profiles are produced at 20 vertical levels. The MODIS atmospheric water-vapor product is an estimate of the total tropospheric column water vapor made from integrated MODIS infrared retrievals of atmospheric moisture profiles in clear scenes.
