Updated the MODIS Data Products Calendar, which shows the processing status, data availability, and PGE version evolution for all MODIS Atmosphere HDF data products. The calendar was updated to show the Collection 006 (green shading) processing status, where the Terra processing for C6 is completed! Also completed was a reprocess of the L3 Aqua Daily data (MYD08_D3), so that some additional COP_Phase (Cloud Optical Properties Phase) Histograms were included. (30 July 2015)

Added new L3 Timeseries pages to the IMAGES section. This new information is to be used for QA purposes only. (23 July 2015)

Added a final version of the L3 ATBD (Algorithm Theoretical Basis Document) & Users Guide for Collection 6 (C6) to the Collection 006 Documentation page. It was also added to (linked from) the "Reference: ATBD and Plans" page -- as well as the ATBD pages in the three L3 Product Sections -- and finally on the home page. (23 July 2015)

Updated the C6 Known Issues for 35_L2 (Cloud Mask Product) and the C6 Known Issues for 06_L2 (Cloud Product) pages -- adding a PDF document providing additional information on the GDAS Change Impacts. (8 July 2015)

Added a draft Citation to the Data Object Identifier (DOI) page of the Cloud (06_L2) product section. (18 June 2015)

Added a Data Object Identifier (DOI) page to the Aerosol (04_L2), Water Vapor (05_L2), Cloud (06_L2), Atm Profile (07_L2), Cloud Mask (35_L2), Joint L2 (ATML2), Daily Global (08_D3), 8-Day Global (08_E3), and Monthly Global (08_M3) product sections. (28 May 2015)

Updated information on the GUI visualization tool Hydra2 on the Tools page. Hydra2 provides a fast and flexible interface that allows users to explore and visualize relationships between sensor measurements (displayed as brightness temperatures for infrared and reflectances for visible and near infrared) and wavelength (or wavenumber) using spectra diagrams, cross sections, scatter plots, multi-band combinations, and color enhancements on a pixel by pixel basis with full access to the underlying metadata of location and time. (10 December 2014)

Updated the C6 Known Problems for 06_L2 (Cloud Product) section, which describes known issues in MODIS Atmosphere Data Products. (3 December 2014)

Added link the new GUI visualization tool "Panoply" Tools page. Panoply is a cross-platform application that plots geo-gridded and other arrays from HDF, netCDF, GRIB files, and others. (23 September 2014)

Updated the Collection 6 Known Problems section, which describes known issues in MODIS Atmosphere Data Products. Tracking of known problems and subsequent fixes is an important issue for MODIS data users. This section will act as a repository of all known MODIS Atmosphere Data Product problems, as well as how to determine the problematic version (and the fixed version) of the HDF data. (23 September 2014)
