Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS)

Collection 5 & 5.1 Atmospheric Data Products to be Discontinued.

Users are advised to switch to the Collection 6 products.


Collection 5 & 5.1 Atmospheric Data Products to be Discontinued

The MODIS Atmosphere Science Team first released Collection 6 science products in early 2014. Since that time, both Collection 6 and Collection 5.1 data products spanning Terra and Aqua missions have been produced and made available to researchers.

Data product users are advised that a number of MODIS instrument calibration issues and trends continue to be investigated by the MODIS Characterization Support Team (http://mcst.gsfc.nasa.gov) as well as the science algorithm teams (http://modis-atmos.gsfc.nasa.gov/validation.html). Calibration issues and downstream product anomalies are being addressed. Reprocessing of recent Terra/MODIS data products is to be anticipated.

As Collection 6 serves to better model instrument calibration issues and trends, Collection 5 and 5.1 atmospheric products are being discontinued effective 11/30/2016. Please contact LAADS User Support with any related questions or comments.

For Land Data Products, both MODIS Collection 5 and 6 data will continue to be available in parallel until December 31, 2016. What's new in Collection 6?

For a comparison of Collection 6 standard and NRT products:

Please note that "NRT" has been to the file names in Collection 6 to distinguish the NRT products from our standard products.
