Operational observation of the australian landscape with bands 8-19 of MODIS
MetadataShow full item record
Data from bands 1-7 of the MODIS instrument are the most commonly utilised in near-real time terrestrial earth observation operations in Australia. However, experience within the Australian MODIS community over the last few years suggests that the operational use of data from MODIS bands 8-19 may provide significant benefit to Earth observation over the land surface of the Australian continent. Ongoing improvement in Earth observation over Australia has driven the development of automated, nationally connected, processing infrastructure for the atmospheric and BRDF correction of the first 19 bands of MODIS. This work has been facilitated by the AusCover project which is the remote sensing component of the Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network (TERN), itself a national program designed to create a new generation of infrastructure for ecological study of the Australian landscape.

(2015)Most ocean color algorithms are designed for optically deep waters, where the seafloor has little or no effect on remote sensing reflectance. This can lead to inaccurate retrievals of inherent optical properties (IOPs) ...
