MOD 07 - Atmospheric Profiles

The MODIS Atmospheric Profiles product (MOD 07) consists of several parameters: they are total-ozone burden, atmospheric stability, temperature and moisture profiles, and atmospheric water vapor. All of these parameters from Terra data are produced day and night for Level 2 at 5 x 5 1-km pixel resolution when at least 9 FOVs are cloud free be-cause of more noise in the relevant bands (bands 33-36). Using Aqua MODIS profiles may be produced at 1-km pixel resolution when cloud-free.
