Description 2016-03-18T19:00:00Z
Terra MODIS atmospheres Near Real Time (nrt*) products, and atmospheres and land operational(ladsweb) products, are not being distributed since Terra safe mode event. NRT Land product users should exercise caution until the latest LUT is installed. Until then mostly fire product should be ok, but occasional commission or omission errors are possible from increased noise in thermal bands. We are expecting a delivery of PGE03 (produces MOD35_L2 cloud mask) and PGE06 with modified de-striping code, which should make cloud mask usable after the degradation of Bands 27 and 29. The atmospheres scientists will instruct us to resume distribution of atmospheres products when they are satisfied with the quality of the outputs.
