613 Seminar: Alexei Lyapustin

NASA/GSFC Climate & Radiation Laboratory

Multi-Angle Implementation of Atmospheric Correction (MAIAC) is an operational algorithm that uses dynamic time series analysis for advanced cloud/snow detection and retrieval of aerosol and surface bidirectional reflectance properties. The broad interdisciplinary suite of MAIAC MODIS C6 products (MCD19) was officially released in Spring of 2018. I will give a general overview of MAIAC algorithm and its MODIS products, discuss validation and current status. I will also discuss new directions of aerosol research from space, including the use of geostationary (AHI-8 HIMAWARI) satellites and a future synergy of ABI - TEMPO.
