Terra mid-infrared (MIR) 16 Nov 2009
- Wisconsin MODIS
Terra mid-infrared (MIR) MODIS imagery of Wisconsin from WisconsinView. This map layer represents red, green, blue (RGB) with spectral bands 7 (2105-2155nm), 2 (841-876nm), 1 (620-670nm). These bands correspond to a combination of visible light and infrared light (not visible) representing a shift in the colors we would expect to see towards the infrared. Surface features that contain chloraphyll-a, such as vegetation, typically reflect strongly near-infrared light (band-2) and therefore show up as colored green in this image. Naturally bare soil is reflective in all bands used in this image, but more so in the SWIR (Band 7) and so soils have a pinkish tint. The primary value of this band combination is to identify fire scars. It is also helps differentiate clouds (white) from snow (blue) in some cases.
General: MODIS imagery of Wisconsin from WisconsinView. Up to six layers are included in this map representing three different band combinations for both the Aqua and Terra satellites. On some days only Aqua or Terra will be available but not both because of conflicting acquisition schedules.
