A Couple More Questions on PACE Processing

by pbkeegstra » Wed Jan 17, 2024 10:47 am America/New_York

Will the PACE OCI Ocean Color L2 (AOP, BGC, IOP) be generated from L1B or from L1C?

Will the PACE OCI land product Surface Reflectance be different from Rayleigh-Corrected Radiance?

The ocean color products from PACE OCI will be generated from L1B.

There isn't a PACE land surface reflectance product...yet ...notice the TBDs under the land section of https://pace.oceansciences.org/data_table.htm ;)

We are exploring options, though, one of which is the current rhos (Rayleigh corrected reflectance) product that l2gen can produce. The downside to that product is the Rayleigh correction used over land is a bit simplistic. We have a team (a small team, currently a team of 1, soon to be 2) looking at alternatives for surface reflectance, as well as other land products (e.g. various vegetative indices) Stay tuned...
