MOD 01 - Level-1A Radiance Counts

This Level 1A data set contains counts for 36 MODIS channels, along with raw instru-ment engineering and spacecraft ancillary data. The Level-1A data are used as input for geolocation, calibration, and processing. Quality indicators are added to the data to indi-cate missing or bad pixels and instrument modes. Visible, SWIR, and NIR measurements are made during daytime only, while radiances for TIR are measured during both the day and the night portions of the orbit.
