Leaf Area Index for Africa September, 2000, through May, 2001
MODIS observations also allow scientists to track two vital signs of Earths vegetation. At Boston University, a team of researchers is using MODIS data to create global estimates of the green leaf area of Earths vegetation and how much sunlight the leaves are absorbing. Called LAI, for Leaf Area Index, and FPAR, for Fraction of absorbed Photosynthetically Active Radiation, both pieces of information are necessary for understanding how sunlight interacts with the Earths vegetated surfaces-from th

MODIS Snow Cover over North America
The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) provides data in 36 spectral bands, some of which are used in an algorithm to map global snow cover. In this animation, a time series of global snow cover from MODIS-derived 8-day composite snow maps with a spatial resolution of about 5 km shows the dynamic behavior of the advance and retreat of continental snow cover over North America during the winter of 2001-02.
Daily Snow and Sea Ice Temperature over Asia
This animation shows the global advance and retreat of daily snow cover along with daily sea ice surface temperature over Asia from September 2002 through May 2003. The snow cover was measured by the MODIS instrument on the Terra satellite, while the sea ice surface temperature was measured by the MODIS instrument on the Aqua satellite. Since these instruments cannot take measurements through clouds, in cloud-covered regions or areas with suspect data quality, the prior days value is retained un
