MOD 08 - Gridded Atmospheric Product
There are three MODIS Level 3 Atmosphere Products, each covering a different temporal scale: Daily, 8-Day, and Monthly. Each of these Level 3 products contains statistics de-rived from over 100 science parameters from the Level 2 Atmosphere products: Aerosol, Precipitable Water, Cloud, and Atmospheric Profiles. A range of statistical summaries (scalar statistics and 1- and 2-dimensional histograms) are computed, depending on the Level 2 science parameter. Statistics are aggregated to a 1° × 1° equal-angle global grid. The daily product contains ~700 statistical summary parameters. The 8-day and monthly products contain ~900 statistical summary parameters.
