The MYDBMSS data set consists of MODIS Atmosphere and Ancillary Product subsets that are generated over a number of the Committee on Earth Observation Satellites (CEOS) Benchmark Land Multi-Site Analysis and Intercomparison of Products (BELMANIP) sites. The BELMANIP sites are comprised of a network of land validation site locations distributed globally to represent the variability of vegetation types and climatological conditions. The products are distributed through subscriptions to various end users but are also archived in LAADS and are available to the general user community.
The process of generating subset cutouts involves locating and identifying a BELMANIP sites from a 5 minute Level-2 MODIS granule and extracting 0.5 x 0.5 degree cutouts. The MYDBMSS data set consists of subsets for nearly 450 BELMANIP sites around the globe. There is one file per site with 55 Science Data Sets (SDS) contained within each HDF product file.
