MODIS C6 Reprocessing

MODIS C6 Land reprocessing for existing products completed in Spring of 2018. The new MODIS products (Evapotranspiration, MOD21 LST, DSR/PAR, MAIAC) were completed in the Spring of 2019.



C61 reprocessing of Land, with minor changes to the land algorithms using the C61 L1B as input, will commence in the Spring of 2019.  

The C6 Terra MODIS products, especially cloud products, were negatively impacted by the optical crosstalk in IR bands (B27 – B30). Though the crosstalk issue was present from the beginning of the mission, its impact on the product was not significant until after year-2009 and became even more significant following the MODIS Terra safe-hold in February 2016. The C6.1 reprocessing implemented an approach to correct this crosstalk in the calibration from the beginning of the mission.



MODIS Collection 5 land products have been decommissioned as of 2018.

Please do not continue to use C5 products that you may have, new and better versions of all the products exist for the full collection.
