title: MODIS HDF File Specification MOD04_L2: MODIS Level 2 Aerosol Land and Ocean Product
Slope_and_Offset_Usage: The local SDS scale_factor and add_offset attributes are used for the conversion of stored integer data to geophysical floating point numbers. The implementation follows conventional HDF usage (See HDF Users Guide): float value = scale_factor*(stored integer - add_offset) The unit of the derived floating point value is indicated in the 'units' local attribute which is also provided.
