  • The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) is a key instrument aboard the Terra (EOS AM-1) and Aqua (EOS PM-1) satellites. The MODIS-EU image mosaic is a seamless true color composite of all Terra and Acqua passes received at DLR during a single day. Daily and Near Real Time (NRT) products are available. For the composite, MODIS channels 1, 4, 3 are used. The channels are re-projected, radiometrically enhanced, and seamlessly stitched to obtain a visually appealing result. Terra passes from north to south across the equator in the morning, while Aqua passes the equator south to north in the afternoon. Both MODIS instruments are viewing the entire Earth surface every 1 to 2 days, acquiring data in 36 spectral bands.

  • The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) is a key instrument aboard the Terra (EOS AM-1) and Aqua (EOS PM-1) satellites. Terra's orbit around the Earth is timed so that it passes from north to south across the equator in the morning, while Aqua passes south to north over the equator in the afternoon. Terra MODIS and Aqua MODIS are viewing the entire Earth's surface every 1 to 2 days, acquiring data in 36 spectral bands, or groups of wavelengths (see MODIS Technical Specifications). This mosaic has been generated from Terra and Aqua products acquired between 30 September and 03 October 2011.
