Quality Assurance - Cloud Mask Statistics
Last Update: September 29, 2006
Cloud Mask Statistics are presented as a series of plots, listed below.
Each data point represents the daily average of the statistic in question,
read directly from the product metadata for each MOD35_L2 (or MYD35_L2)
Collection 5 granule. The sample is taken from day-only granules,
night-only granules, granules containing both day and night (circumpolar
and seasonally dependent), or all available granules for each data day.
Plots will open in a new window.
Note that all percentages are with respect to the total number of pixels
possible; if SuccessfulRetrievalPct is less than 100% then other
percentages will be reduced accordingly.
