Time of data capture

by sayoob » Wed Mar 16, 2022 6:11 am America/New_York

Hi, Is there a way to find the time of the satellite data capture for each pixel in the MODIS-Aqua Rrs data products (9km resolution - L3)?

No. At Level 3 the data for a given bin can come from multiple orbits, or if multi-day composites, multiple days. Time of observation is therefore not meaningful to capture (nor possible).
