MODIS Airborne Simulator (MAS)


Wisconsin Snow and Cloud - Terra 2000
Dates: 15 March - 04 April 1999
Location: Northern Midwest, Great Lakes, & Canada
Principal Investigators: Dr. Chris Moeller (UWisc)
Additional Sensors: AirMISR, Camera (RC-10), CLS, & S-HIS
Objective: To validate cloud detection, cloud height, and cloud particle
characteristics measured by MODIS on TERRA. These flights took place
over the DOE ARM CART site in Oklahoma where many ground-based
instruments also made cloud measurements. MAS data was used to map
the spatial variability of the snow fields to be compared with MODIS. MAS
and S-HIS measurements over the DOE ARM CART site will be compared
to those from MODIS to measure clear atmospheric temperature and moisture
structure, in addtion to validating the radiometric calibration of MODIS.
