Short Name:

MODIS/Aqua Water Reservoir 8-Day L3 Global V061

The Aqua Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) Water Reservoir 8-Day Level 3 (L3) Global (MYD28C2) Version 6.1 product provides current data for 151 man-made reservoirs and 13 regulated natural lakes for a total of 164 reservoirs. The MYD28C2 Version 6.1 data product provides an 8-day time series of surface area, elevation, and water storage. Datasets are combined with pre-established Area-Elevation (A-E) curves ( and image classifications of near-infrared (NIR) reflectance from the surface reflectance product acquired by the Aqua satellite (MYD09Q1). The MYD28C2 data product contains a single layer with information about the reservoir identifier, dam location (longitude and latitude), reservoir area, elevation, and storage capacity.
