Theoretical Basis for Data Products

  • Algorithm Theoretical Basis Documents (ATBDs)
    For details on the logic behind each of Terra’s data products, refer to the listing of ATBDs. These are technical documents describing the process by which the Terra data products are produced using the radiance and reflectance information collected by the five on-board sensors.

Web Resources

  • NASA’s Earth Observations (NEO)
    NEO is your source for global data imagery from NASA. The global data sets are interactive allowing users to look for relationships between different types of data. Ever wondered how Sea Surface Temperature and Chlorophyll concentrations are related? Use the interactive tool to see how.
  • Earth Observatory
    Earth Observatory web site The Earth Observatory offers current information about Earth science through images updated multiple times daily, articles, fact sheets, blogs, and animations. Experiments are activities for educators. The Global Maps section contains movies that show seasonal change in things like plant growth, cloud. The Images section offers satellite images that show new scientific findings, current events, or simple beauty.
