NASA OBPG/JPL MODIS L2P/L3 SST v2019.0 Datasets Release
March 5, 2020
The recent R2019.0 processing of the Aqua/Terra Moderate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) Sea Surface Temperature (SST) data by NASA's Ocean Biology Processing Group (OBPG) has made significant improvements from the previous R2014.0 SST version. This new version has incorporated several enhancements, including a revised cloud classification scheme based on the theory of Alternating Decision Trees (ADtree) developed by Freund and Mason 1999 and modified by Pfahringer et. al. 2000, improved day and night cloud identification using ADTrees (Kilpatrick et. al 2019), and a night time Saharan dust index and aerosol correction for the NSST product (Luo et. Al 2019).
