TECHNICAL REPORT Contract Title: Infrared Algorithm Development for Ocean Observations with EOS/MODIS Contract: NAS Type of Report: Semi-Annual Time Period: July-December Principal Investigator: Otis B. Brown RSMAS/MPO University of Miami Rickenbacker Causeway Miami, Florida _____ INFRARED ALGORITHM DEVELOPMENT . of NOAA infrared radiometer use [Schwalb, ; ]. An aspect of our efforts as members of the MODIS instrument team is to develop a state-of-the-art algorithm for the estimation of sea surface temperature (SST). The goal of this document is to describe the prototype pre-launch SST algorithm for the MODIS instrument, Size: 1MB. of the ocean-atmosphere light field, in both the development of the atmo- spheric correction algorithm and the generation of the lookup tables used for operation of the algorithm, have been completed. algorithm, namely, the atmospheric point spread function cor-rection and an atmosphere BRDF coupling correction. One critical aspect of MODIS algorithm development is the need to optimize the algorithm for efficient global processing. In the sections that follow, the practical aspects of global data pro-cessing for the algorithm are described.

infrared bands of the MODIS sensor and integration of the ocean product algorithms into a cooperative group of programs. While effort has been made to make this document as complete as possible, the reader should understand that this version of the document is a snapshot of ongoing work, i.e., the algorithm development is an evolving process.   The operational algorithm for retrieving temperature and moisture profiles and total column ozone from infrared (IR) radiances observed by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration Earth Observing System (NASA EOS) Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) instrument is a clear sky synthetic regression retrieval algorithm called MOD07 (Seemann et al. , ). Atmospheric retrieval algorithms Cited by: The MODIS operational atmospheric correction algorithm, reported here, uses aerosol and water vapor information derived from the MODIS data, corrects for adjacency effects and takes into account the directional properties of the observed surface.

Satellite data product validation and algorithm development activities both require the substantial accumulation of high-quality in-situ observations. The NASA Ocean Biology Processing Group maintains a local repository of in-situ marine bio-optical data, the SeaWiFS Bio-optical Archive and Storage System (SeaBASS), Cited by: The surface emissivity is retrieved from ASTER observations using the Temperature Emissivity Separation algorithm [Gillespie et al., ] for the five ASTER thermal infrared channels at , , , , and μm.
