Re: Re-griding the MODIS Aqua L2 cloud product.

Dear Aakash Kumar: To be more accurate, the user can use the 1-km “Latitude” and “Longitude” (2030x1354) from MYD03, to identify how many 1-km cloud microphysical properties pixels fall within 5-km cloud top properties pixel. For example, assume “number_of_1km” pixels fall in a 5-km pixel, they can ...

Re: Fine mode fraction aerosol over ocean in MODIS SDS

In MODIS collection 6.1 datasets (e.g. MOD04_L2), there are four variables relevant to fine model: 1. Optical_Depth_Ratio_Small_Ocean_0.55micron: is the fraction of AOT (at 0.55 micron) contributed by fine mode for average solution. 2. Optical_Depth_Small_Average_Ocean: is the retrieved optical thic...

Re: VNP02DNB_NRT and VJ102DNB_NRT

We feel like your note is inaccurate. We looked at the granule you suggested, and the QF is all fill, it is a night granule. We looked at a night granule from day 2023070 and it was the same way. Then we looked at a VNP02DNB from 2023223.2306, and it looks like one would expect. We are not seeing an...

Re: Black Marble NTL data (VNP46A2)

Do you happen to know of studies that have made an effort to filter these other light sources from the dail...
