Hi,

We see no new MODIS (Aqua and Terra) RF products since 2019-12-01, is it normal?

Thanks in advance,
Julien

Yes, this is to be expected. The Refined data are released in one-month batches when refined calibration LUTs have been generated.
This typically happens about 60-90 days after the first day of the month, but the interval can be longer.

Thanks Tommy,

Do you recommend a specific delay if we want to be sure that refined MODIS products are available? 120 days? less? more?

Thanks,
Julien

You should be safe with 120 days.
When we reprocess later this year, we will switch to naming convention that will have NRT in the non-refined file names.

Hi,
Sorry to bother you again, but there is still no RF products since 114 days, do you have an idea when they will be available?
Thanks in advance,
Julien

Yes, this is to be expected. The Refined data are released in one-month batches when refined calibration LUTs have been generated.
This typically happens about 60-90 days after the first day of the month, but the interval can be longer when the center and the workplaces of our collaborators are closed  due to pandemics.

The refined-calibration LUTs for 01-Dec-2019 - 01-Feb-2020 were published yesterday.
