Abstract

Early results are described for some of the land products from MODIS generated in test and evaluation mode prior to operational product release. These products give a first glimpse of the potential of the MODIS instrument for land surface studies. Outline descriptions are provided for the following products: surface reflectance, land surface temperature, vegetation indices, LAI/FPAR, snow and BRDF/Albedo. Quality assurance of products conducted by members of the MODIS land team are described. These initial MODIS products show an enhanced capability for moderate-resolution imaging over previously available operational systems.
