NASA's Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) Adaptive Processing System (MODAPS) Science Investigator-led Processing System (SIPS), located at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, processes data from the MODIS instrument on NASA's Terra and Aqua satellites. MODIS SIPS products include data in 36 spectral bands for land/cloud/aerosols, atmospheric water vapor, surface/cloud temperature, and cloud top altitude to help improve our understanding of global dynamics and processes occurring on the land, in the oceans, and in the lower atmosphere. The products generated by MODAPS SIPS are archived by NASA's Level 1 and Atmosphere Archive and Distribution System Distributed Active Archive Center (LAADS DAAC), Land Processes DAAC (LP DAAC) and National Snow and Ice Data Center DAAC (NSIDC DAAC).

Ocean-related products from MODIS are produced by NASA's Ocean Data Processing System SIPS (ODPS SIPS).
