Abstract:The basic Terra fusion product provides general atmospheric and surface research community a unique temporally-fused set of radiance measurements from all the Terra instruments, namely, the Moderate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS), the Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR), the Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER), the Clouds and Earth’s Radiant Energy System (CERES), and the Measurements of Pollution in the Troposphere (MOPITT). This product contains (1) radiance values of IOFVs (pixels) for each spectral band at a native resolution for each instrument, (2) their quality flags associated with radiance values, (3) their latitude and longitude information at a native resolution, (4) time of observations, (5) instrument viewing geometry, and (6) solar position.
