Table 5 : Wavebands of MODIS and GLI


 

The wavebands for each instrument are listed in numerical order according to the center wavelength of the band.  The corresponding wavebands for each instrument are aligned. 

Ocean wavebands are in the white cells.  Wavebands in italics represent wavebands used for initial cloud screening.
