MODIS Adaptive Processing System (MODAPS) SIPS
The MODIS Adaptive Processing System (MODAPS) SIPS, located at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, processes data from the MODIS instrument on the EOS Terra and EOS Aqua missions. The MODIS SIPS products include data in 36 spectral bands for land/cloud/aerosols, atmospheric water vapor, surface/cloud temperature, and cloud top altitude to help improve our understanding of global dynamics and processes occurring on the land, in the oceans, and in the lower atmosphere. The products generated by MODAPS SIPS are archived by NASA's Level 1 and Atmosphere Archive and Distribution System (LAADS) Distributed Active Archive Center (DAAC), Land Processes DAAC (LP DAAC) and National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) DAAC.
Ocean-related products from MODIS are produced by NASA's Ocean Data Processing System (ODPS) SIPS.
