Maintenance and refinement of the MODIS Aqua/Terra surface reflectance product suite

Time period: 2014 - 2018

The goal of this project is to maintain and refine a well calibrated, high quality, multi-satellite, daily, multispectral land surface reflectance dataset from 2000 to present, providing a critical data set of global land observations needed to advance Earth System Science. Such a high quality global multi-year dataset is fundamental for interdisciplinary studies of the earth system and can be used to study a wide range of land and climate related questions, quantify land use and land cover change, characterize processes and examine functions within the Earth’s land surface over time.
