Near Real-Time Data

NASA’s MODIS Rapid Response Team provided the following near-real-time data over Panama in support of the JASON XV Expedition.

The lefthand thumbnails show the scene in true color (MODIS bands 4, 2, and 1). The middle thumbnail shows the scene in false color (MODIS bands 7, 2, and 1). Notice how this band combination provides excellent contrast between land, water, and clouds (which appear light blue). The righthand thumbnails shows MODIS’ measurement of Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI). Red dots show the locations of actively burning fires. Click on any thumbnail to view that image at MODIS’ maximum resolution of 250 meters per pixel.

On Feb. 5, Barro Colorado Island was at the very edge of both Aqua and Terra MODIS’ viewing swath, which is why the image has a “fuzzy” appearance.
