1 MODIS Ocean Filenames, Structures, and useful metadata Kay Kilpatrick University of Miami/RSMAS

2 Most FAQ:Why does MODIS oceans have so many files and why is everything so BIG! 1km global resolution every day Many more products Meeting the needs of a diverse user community (pleasing all the people all the time) –Pretty pictures/quick looks ; Medium quality, low resolution –Tracking fronts and features ; all pixels, high resolution –High quality climate data; High quality, medium resolution –Modelers; high quality, various projections not maps –Algorithm developers; underlying raw values

3 Where to get data and more information Information locations: MODIS Oceans home page –http://modis-ocean.gsfc.nasa.govhttp://modis-ocean.gsfc.nasa.gov MODIS Oceans QA Browse 36km Imagery (MQABI) –http://jeager.gsfc.nasa.gov/browsetool/http://jeager.gsfc.nasa.gov/browsetool/ Select Terra collection 4 Useful links to documentation and related web pages –http://modis-ocean.gsfc.nasa.gov/doclinks.html Data Ordering locations: NASA GES DAAC WHOM (NASA - Goddard DAAC) WHOM, datapool, multi parameter subsetting EOS DATA GATEWAY EDG -http://modis.gsfc.nasa.gov/data/ordering.htmlhttp://modis.gsfc.nasa.gov/data/ordering.html JPL PODAAC 4km global SST only

4 MODIS Ocean Products MODIS Instruments: – Terra (1030 morning), MO* – Aqua (1330 afternoon) MY* Resolution: –Spatial: Level 2 - 1km swath, ~2030km x 1354km; Level 3 - 4km, 36km, 1 deg [all products are global] –Temporal Resolution: Level minute granule; Level 3 - daily, 8 day week, monthly, yearly Other data sets: - SST matchups database - ocean color diagnostic data sites

5 MODIS Ocean data products There are 86 ocean parameters available in over 100 categories of MODIS Ocean data types archived by (and may be obtained from) the NASA Goddard Distributed Active Archive Center. The three basic groupings of MODIS ocean data parameters are: –ocean color –sea surface temperature –ocean primary production

6 Parameters 36 Ocean Color parameters 3 Sea Surface Temperature parameters 8 Primary Productivity parameters (including 2 Primary Production indices) 38 Quality Control parameters.

7 Processing levels Level 1 - Unprocessed top of the atmosphere radiance/reflectance –At 1-km spatial resolution –5 minute granule time resolution ; 288 granules/day Level 2 swath data –At 1-km spatial resolution –5 minute granule time resolution; color 144/day, SST 288/day Level 3 global binned or mapped data – spatial resolutions of 4.63km, 36km, or 1 degree –Time resolutions of one day, 8 days, a month or a year. –The binned; ISEAG grid –The SMI mapped; cylindrical Equidistant Projection Centered at 0,0.

8 Level 4 Productivity Ocean primary production data is available only as binned or mapped Level 4 (i.e. L4) data. Ocean Productivity outputs are averaged weekly or yearly. Like the L3 data, the L4 data is organized spatially as either 4km ISEAG gridded bins or as maps using a Cylindrical Equidistant Projection. The mapped data products are available in a choice of 4km, 36km, or 1 degree spatial resolutions. More than one model is used for deriving these data products and some quality statistics are available.

17 L3 mapped files Various time and space resolutions Cylindrical equidistant projection All bins present, including fill values (255) for land and missing data 8 map files for each product –Mean, Count,Stdev, Common flags,Quality flags,Flag byte 1, Flag byte 2, Flag byte 3 –Files sizes : 4km =67MB, 36km=1MB,1deg=.2MB

18 File formats All Ocean products are in EOS HDF format Values are stored as counts Scaling information to convert from counts to real numbers is located in the file metadata for each parameter (SDS) –Scale_type –Slope –Intercept

19 Pixel Quality Flags Each product contains all values at all levels of quality you must filter the data for your application using the quality flag. Each pixel is associated with a quality level stored as a 2 bit value (0,1,2,3) in the “quality” SDS. –The position of the quality level within the byte is given in the metadata attributes for each parameter (“Quality_Bits”). –Example: MODCL2A: Chlor_MODIS quality is in bit position 11-12, while Chlor_Fluor_ht is in position (note: 1-based numbering convention) QL=<=3 QL=0

20 Quality level definitions There are four quality levels  0=good  1=questionable/suspect  2= sun glint or possible cloud contaminated  3=bad, thick cloud or other failure These levels are derived by evaluating various combinations of threshold tests common to all products and specific to individual products. Other sets of flags,known as common and product specific flags, are used to store the results of these threshold tests.

21 MODIS Ocean Flags, quality control, and masks Kay Kilpatrick University of Miami/RSMAS Part 2

22 Flags The Ocean products are designed to meet the needs of a variety of users. These flags are key to controlling the quality and coverage of the data for your application.  Quality flags  Common flags  Product specific flags

23 How are they stored in the files All flags are stored as data type byte Quality SDS -Quality levels are stored at 2 bits Level 3- 1 byte per file only for that product integer value of 0,1,2,3,or 255 Level 2 - maximum of 3 bytes per files, must decode the bits Common flags SDS - each test is 1 bit, Level 2&3 1 byte per file L2_flags SDS - product specific tests each test is 1 bit Level 2&3 max 3 byte per file

24 Example metadata ncdump -h MODOCL2.A dimensions: Number of records:Swath = 2030 ; Number of samples per record:Swath = 1354 ; variables: short nLw_412(Number of records:Swath, Number of samples per record:Swath) ; nLw_412:Long_name = "Normalized water-leaving radiance at 412 nm" ; nLw_412:Scale_type = "y= Slope * x + Intercept;" ; nLw_412:Slope = 0.001f ; nLw_412:Intercept = -5.f ; nLw_412:Name = "Radiance" ; nLw_412:Units = "W/m^2/um/sr" ; nLw_412:Quality_Bits = "1-2" ;

25 Common flags The common flags are tests that are the same for every product The results of these tests are stored in the “common_flag” SDS as type byte.  Bit 1 Pixel not processed  Bit 2 Atmospheric correction failed  Bit 3 Satellite Zenith angle >45  Bit 4 Solar Zenith angle >70  Bit 5 Shallow water (<5km from coast or <50m deep,or inland lake)  Bit 6 Sun glint threshold or cloud 678 homogeniety exceed  Bit 7 Invalid or missing ancillary data  Bit 8 Land (include ephemeral water)

54 Chlor_a2 Quality Mandatory Quality for SeaWiFs analog OC3M Chlorophyll chlor_a2 0 = good, if pigc between 0.01 and 100 mg/m**3 1 = Sat Zenth angle >70, shallow water, bad ancillary data, data values 100 mg/m**3 2 = Sun glint contaminated 3 = input radiances are negative or saturated, glint, cloudy, aersol model==16, land or atmospheric correction problem, pig

55 11-12um SST Quality Mandatory Quality for SST products 0 = good, if common flags are clear, input radiance flags are clear, and product-specific L2_flags 9,11-16 are clear 1 = questionable, large zenith angle, bad ancillary or flags 3, = sun glint or channel uniformity bad contaminated 3 = if any input radiances are negative and not saturated, or Atmospheric Correction failed, or Land

56 SST4 Quality Mandatory Quality for SST4 products 0 = good, if common flags are ok, inputs, both sat zenith tests, both sst4-sst, BT22-BT23-ref, both uniformity, brights, and reynolds(optional) 1 = questionable, if any of: if sst4-sst test2, sat zenith test 2, or unif test2 2 = if sst4-sst test 1, sat zenith angle test 1, or uniformity test1 3 = if any input radiances are negative and not saturated, BT22-BT23-ref out of range, brights outside (-4..33)
