MODISA and MODIST processing schedule

by mkahru » Sun Sep 26, 2021 3:13 pm America/New_York

Hi,
Is there a schedule for processing final MODISA and MODIST level-2 data, i.e. when the attribute "processing_version" changes from 2018.1QLP, etc. to 2018.1 ?
Thanks.

2018.1QLP processing is near real time using possibly forecasted attitude/ephemeris and and forecasted or climatological meteorological and SST data. It is available a few hours after real time.

The 2018.1QL version is processed when the refined attitude/ephemeris and meteorological and SST data are available, typically 14-16 days after real time.

The 2018.1 version uses a refined instrument calibration, and is released in monthly batches that are generally available 45 -90 days after the last day of the month in question. We expect to release the July and August 2021 data in mid-October due to a delay in generating the refined calibration.
