I've read about MISR Plumes in various articles. Where can I find plume data?

The MISR and MODIS instruments aboard the Terra satellite produce a number of parameters relevant to the study of wildfire smoke plumes. This Plume Height Project website is a publicly-available repository for the data acquired by MISR and MODIS and processed under the auspices of a project to develop an aerosol injection height climatology to support wild fire, climate change and air quality studies.

Hi all,

I was looking for the MPHP2 data, too, but following the outdated link there seems to be an internal loop, so you always get back to the intermediate website at:

Grateful for any advise.
Cheers, Lars

The old access to the MISR Plume Height Project data went away when the MISR team released the new MISR site, and they don’t have any way to put that functionality on the new site. But, there have been some unforeseen delays in getting the new MERLIN tool out to the public on the ASDC site, so unfortunately, for now, there is no plume height project data access. The MISR team is hoping that MERLIN will be released any day now, and once it is there will be a link to it from the current page on the MISR site. The release of the new website and the release of MERLIN were supposed to happen more or less simultaneously to prevent this issue, but that didn’t work out. The MISR team do send their apologies.
