There are many MODIS products, in many formats. This document will list all of the data products and formats that have DART programs to convert them to observation sequence files.


MOD15A2_to_obs Converts MODIS Land Product Subsets Leaf Area Index (LAI) and Fraction of Photosynthetically Active Radiation (FPAR) 8 day composite [MOD15A2]


  1. Support MOD15A2 'Global Tool' records.
  2. The work that remains is to get the IGBP landcover code for the site and incorporate that into the observation metadata. I almost have everything I need. Once that happens, the forward observation operator can be made to be much more accurate by only using model landunits that have the right landcover class.
  3. Support more products. Put in a request to help me prioritize.
