Arctic Radiation Measurement in Column: Atmosphere-Surface (ARMCAS) MODIS Airborne Simulator (MAS) Level-1B Data Products

Version Not provided eng
  • Abstract
    The objective of the Arctic Radiation Measurement in Column: Atmosphere-Surface (ARMCAS) experiment was to detect and differentiate between clouds, ice, and snow over Northern Alaska. This experiment will also help determine the scattering albedo of clouds at selected wavelengths in the visible and near-infrared bands. The data was collected for the MODIS Airborne Simulator (MAS) project. This data will help define, develope, and test algorithms for the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) sensor which is a key sensor of NASA's Earth Observing System (EOS). The ARMCAS data are available from the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center L1 and Atmosphere Archive and Distribution System (LAADS). The data cover the Brooks Range, North Slope, and Bering Sea in Alaska. Browse imagery of the data may be viewed from the MODIS Homepage at: http://mas.arc.nasa.gov/data/deploy_html/armcas_home.htmlTo order HDF formatted MAS data, link to the GSFC/DAAC homepage at:http://ladsweb.nascom.nasa.gov/data/MAS.html[Summary adapted from the GSFC/LAADS homepage]
