Data Volume

The MODIS Atmosphere Daily Global Product is produced at the MODAPS facility at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. MODAPS will produce 100% of the MODIS Atmosphere Daily Global Product. The data volume will be a single HDF file of nearly 500 MB per day.

Production Rules

These rules apply to PGE56, the daily executable. At the time all 36 (5-degree) tile file daily inputs are expected, run PGE56 only if all tile files are present. Otherwise, wait 24 hours, then run if at least one tile file is present.
