MODIS/Aqua Near Real Time (NRT) L2 Surface Reflectance, 5-Min Swath 250m, 500m, and 1km

NRT

MODIS/Aqua Near Real Time (NRT) L2 Surface Reflectance, 5-Min Swath 250m, 500m, and 1km (MYD09). This product is computed from the MODIS Level 1B land bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 (centered at 648 nm, 858 nm, 470 nm, 555 nm, 1240 nm, 1640 nm, and 2130 nm, respectively). The product is an estimate of the surface spectral reflectance for each band as it would have been measured at ground level if there were no atmospheric scattering or absorption. The surface-reflectance product is the input for product generation for several land products: vegetation Indices (VIs), BRDF, thermal anomaly, snow/ice, and Fraction of Photosynthetically Active Radiation/Leaf Area Index (FPAR/LAI).
