Group: Summary

   This data set provides Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) 
   data from the Cold Land Processes Field Experiment (CLPX). These data are 
   delivered in geographic (GEO) and Universal Tranverse Mercator (UTM) grids 
   covering the Large-Regional Study Area (LRSA) in Colorado, USA. The data cover 
   the time period Feb 15 (day 046) through May 15 (day 135), a total of 90 days, 
   for both study years (2002-2003). Data were resampled from the original 
   HDF-EOS product files containing either swath data or gridded data. Parameters 
   include calibrated radiances, surface refelctance, snow cover, surface 
   temperature/emissivity, and vegetation indices. Gridded data are provided in 
   two formats: raw binary (including an ASCII header) and GeoTiff. Both formats 
   are provided as output from the MODIS Reprojection Tool which is used to  
   regrid MODIS gridded data.
