MODIS/Aqua Temp and Water Vapor Profiles 5km 5-Min L2 Narrow Swath Subset along CloudSat V002 (MAC07S0) at GES DISC

This is the narrow-swath MODIS/Aqua subset along CloudSat field of view track. The goal of the narrow-swath subset is to select and return MODIS data that are within +-5 km across the CloudSat track. I.e. the resultant MODIS subset swath is sought to be about 10 km cross-track. However, the original MYD07_L2 has data of 5-km pixels. Thus, MAC07S0 cross-track width is 3-pixels, and the resultant swath is about 15-km, correspondingly. Along-track, all MODIS pixels from the original product are preserved. In the standard product, the level-2 MODIS Temperature and Water Vapor Profile Product MYD07_L2 consists of 30 gridded parameters related to atmospheric stability, atmospheric temperature and moisture profiles, total atmospheric water vapor, and total ozone. All of these parameters are produced for both daytime and nighttime conditions at 5-km pixel resolution when at least 9 FOVs are cloud free. (The shortname for this product is MAC07S0).
