Aqua near-infrared (NIR) 16 Nov 2009
- Wisconsin MODIS
Aqua near-infrared (NIR) MODIS imagery of Wisconsin from WisconsinView. This map layer represents red, green, blue (RGB) with spectral bands 2 (841-876nm), 1 (620-670nm), 4 (545-565nm). 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 cloraphyll-a, such as vegetation, typically reflect strongly near-infrared light and therefore show up as colored red in this imagery.
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.
