Remote Sensing of Land, Oceans, and Atmosphere with MODIS

Remote Sensing of Land, Oceans, and Atmosphere with MODIS
This Webcast is based on presentations given by Dr. W. Paul Menzel at several conferences. It is approximately 60 minutes in length and introduces the MODIS instrument on the Terra satellite. Dr. Menzel begins by providing background on MODIS channel selection and instrument calibration. He continues with a variety of examples that include both climatological and meteorological applications, including high-resolution data and derived-product imagery. The examples are divided into land, ocean, and atmosphere applications. Dr. Menzel concludes with a discussion of the new direct-broadcast capability of the Terra satellite that allows users all over the world to receive MODIS data.
