Goal
  • To provide subsets of MODIS Land Products in a format and spatial scale useful to field investigators
    • Facilitates interaction between remote sensing scientists and field investigators
    • Easily compare satellite data with ground-based measurements
  • Used for validation of MODIS Land Products
slide4

MODIS ASCII Subsets

  • Subsets of Terra and Aqua MODIS Land Products for 280 sites worldwide (field sites or flux towers) in an easy-to-use ASCII format
    • 7 km x 7 km centered on flux tower or field sites
  • Two annual products, four 8-day products, two 16-day product, and calculated albedo, from 2000 to present

albedo calculated from modis brdf product
Albedo Calculated from MODIS BRDF Product
  • MODIS BRDF Albedo Model Product (MOD43B1) contains parameters for calculating albedo for visible, near-IR, and shortwave
  • Black Sky albedo
    • ƒ(parm 1, parm 2, parm 3, szn)
  • White Sky albedo
    • ƒ(parm 1, parm 2, parm 3)
  • Blue Sky albedo
    • ƒ(white sky albedo, black sky albedo, optical thickness)
quality assurance
Quality Assurance
  • Provide quality assurance data layers
    • Including snow

additional data compiled for albedo validation
Additional data compiled for albedo validation
  • Broadband Diffuse Irradiance Climatology for the selected MODIS ASCII Subset Sites (n = 254)
    • Based on AERONET data
    • Prepared by Privette and Hoffman
    • Available from ORNL

ftp://daac.ornl.gov/data/eos_land_val/albedo/

  • Subsets of Optical Depth (MOD04) for 24 sites;
    • Summit, ETH_CU_Swiss_Camp, Tateno, Fort_Peck_Montana, Payerne, BARC, Barton_Bendish, BOREAS_BERMS, Jornada, Lake_Tahoe, Mandalgobi, Metolius_Old_Pine, Tapajos, North_Temperate_Lakes
    • Available from NASA GSFC

future plans modis ascii subsets
Future Plans: MODIS ASCII Subsets
  • Continue to offer subsets of Collection 4 MODIS Land Products from Terra and Aqua
  • Add Continuous Vegetation Field subsets when available
  • Evaluate current sites and seek additional sites for future processing / reprocessing (e.g., Collection 5 in late-2005)
    • To have your field site added to the MODIS Subset Collection, we need the geographic coordinates (to four significant decimal places; 10s of meters) and your commitment to share data
need site location good to 0 0001 degree
Need site location good to 0.0001 degree

1 minute uncertainty yields +/- 2 km or 25 pixels

Uncertainty of +/- 1 minute

future plans modis subset pilot
Future Plans: MODIS Subset Pilot
  • Tool to enable on-the-fly subsetting and visualization
    • For any area in North America up to 200 x 200 km
    • For pre-selected sites for the rest of the world
  • Incorporate albedo calculation from MOD43B parameters
