ARDANUY, PE, HAN, D, SALOMONSON, VV (1991). THE MODERATE RESOLUTION IMAGING SPECTROMETER (MODIS) SCIENCE AND DATA SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS. IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON GEOSCIENCE AND REMOTE SENSING, 29(1), 75-88.

Abstract
The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MODIS) has been designated as a facility instrument on the first NASA polar orbiting platform as part of the Earth Observing System (EOS), and is scheduled for launch in the late 1990's. The near global daily coverage of MODIS, combined with its continuous operation, broad spectral coverage, and relatively high spatial resolution, makes it central to the objectives of EOS. The mission requirements of the EOS and the MODIS instruments may be traced through the MODIS science team members to the proposed set of core MODIS data products. The development, implementation, production, and validation of these core data products define a set of functional, performance, and operational requirements on the data system that operate between the sensor measurements and the data products supplied to the user community. In this paper, we review the science requirements guiding the processing of MODIS data, and we discuss some aspects of an operations concept for the production of data products from MODIS for use by the scientific community.
