Abstract
The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS instruments onboard the NASA Terra and Aqua Spacecrafts have provided unprecedented capabilities in global observations of land, ocean, and atmosphere. In this paper, we report that, under certain atmospheric and surface conditions, several MODIS channels in the visible and near-IR spectral regions can saturate. The radiance dynamic ranges of similar channels for future satellite earth observing instruments should be increased. Instrument designers and MODIS data users should be aware of the saturation problems associated with these MODIS channels.
