MODIS Adaptive Processing System
The MODIS Adaptive Processing System (MODAPS) SIPS, located at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, processes data from the MODIS instrument on the EOS Terra and EOS Aqua missions. The MODIS SIPS products include data in 36 spectral bands for land/cloud/aerosols, atmospheric water vapor, surface/cloud temperature, and cloud top altitude to help improve our understanding of global dynamics and processes occurring on the land, in the oceans, and in the lower atmosphere. The products generated by MODAPS SIPS are archived by the Level 1 and Atmosphere Archive and Distribution System (LAADS), Land Processes Distributed Active Archive Center (LP DAAC), and National Snow and Ice Data Center DAAC (NSIDC DAAC).
Ocean-related products from MODIS are produced by the Ocean Data Processing System SIPS (ODPS SIPS).
