MODIS/Terra Atmosphere BELMANIP Subsetting Product

The MODIS/Terra Atmosphere BELMANIP subsetting Product (MODBMSS) consists of MODIS Atmosphere and Ancillary Products subsets that are generated over the Bench-mark Land Multisite Analysis and Intercomparison of Products (BELMANIP) sites. The BELMANIP sites is a network of sites, distributed globally and consist of existing networks such as EOS Core Sites, Bigfoot, VALERI, FLUXNET, AERONET, and a set of additional sites.The process of generating cutouts for these sites involves locating and identifying a subset of sites taken from global BELMANIP sites that are within the spatial coverage of a 5 minute Level 2 MODIS granule and extracting 0.5 x 0.5 degree cutouts. The MODBMSS data set consists of subsets for approximaely 445 sites around the globe. There is one file per site with 55 Science Data Sets.
