Aqua Product Descriptions: MYD02SSH

Last update: October 25, 2017

Data Set Short Name:
MYD02SSH

Data Set Long Name:
MODIS/Aqua Level 1B Subsampled Calibrated Radiance 5Km

Platform:
Aqua

Instrument:
MODIS

Product Description:
Contains a 5km X 5km sub-sampling of the data from the MYD021KM file along with the associated metadata. Except for the different sizes of the arrays, it has the same structure as the parent file, including dimension names that don't match the new, shorter sizes of those dimensions. The HDF-EOS dimension map has been adjusted to reflect the fact that data fields and the geolocation fields are at exactly the same resolution.

Production Frequency:
288 files per day

Spatial Coverage:
Global

Spatial Resolution:
5 km at nadir

File Size (MB):
7.5-15
