• The Terra satellite successfully completed its Constellation Exit Maneuvers (CEM) on October 12 and 19, 2022. The instruments have since returned to a nominal state and data processing and distribution resumed as of October 24. Please note that there is a gap in coverage between October 10, 2022 and October 23, 2022 during which the satellite exercises and subsequent stabilization and Post-CEM calibrations took place.

     

    Please note that the CEM does not indicate the end of life for the Terra mission, but it does represent a change in orbital positioning. Users who are interested in knowing more about the Terra morning constellation exit can refer to this note.

     

  • MODIS Collection 6.1 has been fully reprocessed and temporal coverage is now complete. MODIS Collection 6.0 data sets will be processed continuously through the end of 2022. Data for C6.0 will likely remain available for just a few months thereafter.
