Meister, G; McClain, CR (2010). Point-spread function of the ocean color bands of the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer on Aqua. APPLIED OPTICS, 49(32), 6276-6285.

Abstract
The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the Aqua platform has nine spectral bands with center wavelengths from 412 to 870 nm that are used to produce the standard ocean color data products. Ocean scenes usually contain high contrast due to the presence of bright clouds over dark water. About half of the MODIS Aqua ocean pixels are flagged as spatial stray light contaminated. The MODIS has been characterized for stray light effects prelaunch. In this paper, we derive point-spread functions for the MODIS Aqua ocean bands based on prelaunch line-spread function measurements. The stray light contamination of ocean scenes is evaluated based on artificial test scenes and on-orbit data. (C) 2010 Optical Society of America
