Short Name:

MODIS/Terra Atmosphere FluxNet Subsetting Product

The MODIS/Terra Atmosphere FluxNet Subsetting Product (MODFNSS) consists of MODIS Atmosphere and Ancillary Products subsets that are generated over a global network of micrometeorological flux measurement (FLUXNET) sites. The process of generating cutouts for these sites involves locating and identifying a subset of sites taken from a global FLUXNET that are within the spatial coverage of a 5 minute Level 2 MODIS granule and extracting 0.5 x 0.5 degree cutouts. The MODFNSS data set consists of subsets for around 400 sites out of the total flux tower sites around the globe. There is one file per site with around 55 Science Data Sets (SDS) such as at-aperture radiances for 36 discrete MODIS bands, Cloud Mask, and Water Vapor, etc.
