I'm processing MODIS/Aqua Level 1 data to create Level 2 cloud-free surface reflectance using SeaDAS l2gen. The goal is to produce cloud-free surface reflectance images like the MYD09GA without daily composite. I know the Level 2 Ocean Color Flag "CLDICE" removes both sea ice and cloud, but I want cloud-free surface reflectance over sea ice.
Could someone provide some suggestions?
Quoting <https://modis-snow-ice.gsfc.nasa.gov/up ... ce_ist.pdf>:
"Because the swath algorithm will often map clouds as sea ice,
we use the MODIS cloud mask product to mask the clouds. If
the cloud mask fails to map a cloud, then it will be mapped by
the sea ice algorithm as sea ice. To avoid such errors of commis-
sion, the algorithm that produces the eight-day composite maps
requires that sea ice be visible two days in a row in order to be
mapped as sea ice."
