Can you point me to some information about the calibration option in the l2gen that gives the option of "2 - enables MODIS and MERIS cloud mask for HABs"? What is different about this option than the standard processing?
Thanks for that info. I am working analyzing MODIS images for Harmful Algal Blooms. The standard cloud mask tends to mask pixels that still have information that we can use in our analysis. I am not analyzing the CI index, which appears to be the code you linked to. I could use, however, the cloud mask that Stumpf uses for his product. If this cloud mask gives me that, it would be fantastic. I did not want to assume that I knew what that option was doing, and use it without verification.
If I am looking at MODIS images of Lake Erie, and want a cloud mask more suited to HABs than the default mask, then this option is a good choice?
