Tropospheric Aerosol Radiative Forcing Observational Experiment (TARFOX) MODIS Airborne Simulator (MAS) Level-1B Data Products

Version Not provided eng
  • Abstract
    The objective of the Tropospheric Aerosol Radiative ForcingObservational Experiment (TARFOX) was to Determine the directradiative impact and (chemical, physical, optical) propertiesof aerosols to reduce uncertainties in their effect on climate.The data was collected for the MODIS Airborne Simulator(MAS) project. This data will help define, develop, and testalgorithms for the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer(MODIS) sensor which is a key sensor of NASA's Earth ObservingSystem (EOS).The TARFOX data are available from the NASA Goddard Space FlightCenter Level 1 and Atmosphere Archive and Distribution System (GSFC/LAADS).The data cover the Mid Atlantic United States Region and the nearby AtlanticOcean. Browse imagery of the data may be viewed from theMODIS Homepage at:http://mas.arc.nasa.gov/data/deploy_html/tarfox_home.htmlTo order HDF formatted MAS data, link to the LAADS homepage at:http://ladsweb.nascom.nasa.gov/data/MAS.html .
