Terra MODIS Data

This data set contains the 1 km resolution data from the NASA Terra satellite Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) instrument during the ORCAS (The O2/N2 Ratio and CO2 Airborne Southern Ocean Study) Project. These data are 10-hour tar files that contain data files in the Hierarchical Data Format (HDF). The individual data files are the near-real-time Level-1B 5 minute granules.
