Moderate resolution imaging spectroradiometer (MODIS) and observations of the land surfaceThe moderate resolution imaging spectroradiometer (MODIS) is a NASA facility instrument that is being designed for flight on the Earth Observing System (EOS) series of missions. It is designed to measure biophysical states and dynamics of the land, atmosphere, and ocean. Plans are required for use of other instruments that will be accompanying MODIS on the EOS missions, such as the High-Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (HIRIS) and the Multi-angle Imaging Spectro-Radiometer (MISR). The HIRIS instrument, a spectrometer operating in the visible to shortwave infrared parts of the spectrum, would be employed in combination with the MODIS to understand the impact of sampling the spectrum and the effects of land cover mixtures within the MODIS pixel. The MISR will help in understanding the effects of anisotropy in reflected solar radiation. Both instruments will work in combination with MODIS to better quantify the effects of the atmosphere on observations of surface properties.
