Guenther, B, Godden, GD, Xiong, XX, Knight, EJ, Qiu, SY, Montgomery, H, Hopkins, MM, Khayat, MG, Hao, ZD (1998). Prelaunch algorithm and data format for the Level 1 calibration products for the EOS-AM1 Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS). IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON GEOSCIENCE AND REMOTE SENSING, 36(4), 1142-1151.

The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) radiometric calibration product (Level 1B) is described for the thermal emissive and reflective solar bands. A band-integrated radiance is produced for all measurements. A reflectance factor product is also produced for the reflected solar band measurements, Specific sensor design characteristics are identified to assist in understanding how the calibration algorithm software product is designed. The product file format is summarized, and the location for the current file format is provided.
