MODIS/Terra Atmosphere Aeronet Subsetting Product

The MODIS/Terra Atmosphere Aeronet Subsetting Product (MODARNSS) consists of MODIS Atmosphere and Ancillary Products subsets that are generated over a number of Aerosol Robotic Network (AERONET) sites. These sites comprise of sites of automatic tracking Sun photometers/sky radiometers located all over the world. The process of generating cutouts involves locating and identifying a subset of sites taken from a global AERONET that are within the spatial coverage of a 5 minute Level 2 MODIS granule and extracting 0.5 x 0.5 degree cutouts. The MODARNSS data set consists of subsets for around 180 AERONET sites around the globe.
