Aqua Product Descriptions: MYDATML2

Last update: May 23, 2006

Data Set Short Name:
MYDATML2

Data Set Long Name:
MODIS/Aqua Aerosol, Cloud and Water Vapor Subset 5-Min L2 Swath 5km and 10km

Platform:
Aqua

Instrument:
MODIS

Product Description:
MYDATML2 contains a combination of key high interest science parameters obtained from the complete set of standard at-launch Level-2 Source Products: Aerosol Properties (Optical Depth, Small Mode Optical Depth Ratio, Small and Large Mode Solution Index over Ocean, Effective Particle Radius and QA Flags), Water Vapor Properties (Near-IR and IR Total Column Water), Cloud Properties (Optical Thickness, Effective Radius, Phase, Cloud Top Temperature and Pressure, Cloud Fraction and Cirrus Reflectance) and Cloud Mask Flags. It is to be noted that two sets of geolocation arrays (5 km and 10 km resolution) are provided in this product. Some of the science parameters (cloud, water-vapor and cloud mask) have been subsampled to 5 km, from the original 1 km data. This product was designed to be compact (a single CD can contain one full day of data files!) yet robust enough to be useful to a significant number of MODIS data users.
