Advanced Webinar: MODIS to VIIRS Transition for Air Quality Applications

Date Range: 
October 22, 2020.
Times: 
09:00 ET and 16:00 ET

With the end of the MODIS data record approaching, it is important that current MODIS users transition to VIIRS data and visualization tools. As they make this transition, users also need information regarding which MODIS geophysical parameters will be available with VIIRS and vice-versa, and the differences between them.

This training will teach users how to access VIIRS data products, the differences involved in using VIIRS as opposed to MODIS, and how to apply VIIRS aerosol optical depth observations for air quality applications.

Thursday, October 22, 2020, The same session will be offered at two different times of day. Participants need only to register and attend one session.

Learning Objectives: 

By the end of this training, participants will:

  • Access NASA VIIRS aerosol products through Earthdata
  • Describe the differences between the MODIS and VIIRS instruments and aerosol optical depth (AOD) products
  • Understand how VIIRS aerosol optical depth observations can be used for modeling and monitoring of air pollution transport
Course Format: 
  • One, one and a half hour session
  • The same session will be offered at two different times of day

Materials:

Prerequisites: 

Before the training you will need:
