2012-09-24 - Proposed C6 Aqua L1 and Cloud Mask Reprocessing

The Aqua cold Focal Plane temperatures currently experience an increasing orbital oscillation due to a decrease in radiative cooler margin. The majority of the impact on MODIS data is captured by the scan-by-scan nature of the calibration for thermal bands. A modified approach to derive the non-linear calibration coefficients and compensate for the temperature fluctuations was implemented in Aqua C6 forward processing as a LUT update on 07/05/12 ( More information is available at the LAADS Web News Section.
