Short summary
MAIAC algorithm used for the MODIS C6 processing is described. MAIAC combines time series analysis and pixel/image-based processing to improve the accuracy of cloud detection, aerosol retrievals and atmospheric correction. MAIAC offers an interdisciplinary suite of atmospheric, land surface and snow products. Due to generally high quality, high resolution and high coverage, MAIAC AOD and surface reflectance/BRDF have been widely used for air quality and land research and applications.
