Aqua Product Descriptions: MOD09CMA

Last update: February 12 2015

Data Set Short Name:
MOD09CMA

Data Set Long Name:
MODIS/Terra Aerosol Optical Thickness Daily L3 Global 0.05Deg CMA

Platform:
Terra

Instrument:
MODIS

Product Description:
The MODIS Aerosol Optical Thickness (MOD09CMA) is a daily level 3 and global product. It is in linear latitude and longitude (Plate Carre) projection with a 0.05° spatial resolution. This product is derived from MOD09IDN, MOD09IDT and MOD09IDS for each orbit by compositing the data on the basis of minimum band 3 (459 - 479 nm band) values (after excluding pixels flagged for clouds and high solar zenith angles).
