Short Name:

MODIS/Terra Surface Reflectance Daily L2G Global 250 m SIN Grid NRT


The MODIS/Terra Surface Reflectance Daily L2G Global 250m SIN Grid, Near Real Time (NRT) like other Surface Reflectance products are an estimate of the surface spectral reflectance as it would be measured at ground level in the absence of atmospheric scattering or absorption. Low-level data are corrected for atmospheric gases and aerosols, yielding a level-2 basis for several higher-order gridded level-2 (L2G) and level-3 products. This product, with short name MOD09GQ provides Bands 1 and 2 at a 250-meter resolution in a daily gridded L2G product in the Sinusoidal projection. Science Data Sets provided for this product include reflectance for Bands 1 and 2 a quality rating observation coverage and observation number. This product is meant to be used in conjunction with MOD09GA where important quality and viewing geometry information is stored.
