20051025: Modis bowtie correction (cont.)

Hi Oana,

>How are you?

I am well, thank you.  How are you?

>I worked a lot on MODIS bowtie correction, and finally I got results. With 
>some help from IDL and Liam Gumley.

This is excellent news!

>My question now: I receive MODIS data via McIDAS, from 
>NANUK.EOSDIS.NASA.GOV, but as far as I looked there are not all the MODIS 
>data over Romania made available via this ADDE server. Is there any 
>possibily to make all this data (I mean over Romania) available via McIDAS?

The question is if there are any other installations that have full
global MODIS data and make it available by ADDE.  I know that SSEC has
a MODIS receiver, but I don't know if they are getting the MODIS data
from other downlink sites, and I further don't know if they would then
make the data available by ADDE.  One of the problems I have noticed
with MODIS data is that sites that downlink it typically want to charge
for it.

>And the second one: we still don't have any answer from the NOAA contact 
>you've send me. Can you help us?

I will be flying to Madison, Wisconsin to attend the McIDAS Users Group
(MUG) tomorrow.  I see from an email that I received that Brian Hughes
(the person that gave me the contact information to request access to
SATEPS ADDE servers) will also be at the meeting.  I will ask Brian if
he can help out with your access to the ADDE servers.  I must tell you
that I did send off an email asking if you (NAM) could get access to
the SATEPS servers, but I, like you, did not receive any reply.
Perhaps talking to Brian in persion will help get this moving.

Also, while I am at the MUG meeting I will ask if anyone knows of ADDE
servers that might contain good MODIS coverage of Romania.  I believe
that Spain ingests MODIS data and that it runs ADDE servers for other
types of satellite data (e.g., MSG), so it may be possible that they
could make the data available.  I want to warn you, however, that it is
next to impossible to get access to their MSG ADDE server(s), so this
request may go nowhere.

Cheers,

Tom

Hi Tom!

Thank you very much for your help. So, I'll be waiting for you to come back 
from the MUG meeting.
Regarding the MSG data, received via Spanish ADDE, no problem because we 
have a MSG receiver, so we don't need this data.
My question was only about MODIS data.

Regards,

Oana
