Figure 10 from paper, showing mitigation of bow-tie distortion

Paper about the MODIS bow-tie distortion and effect on aerosol retrievals

Illustration of the effects of aggregation technique on spatial distribution of retrieved DB AOD at 550 nm near the edge of a MODIS swath. Panel (a) shows a true-color image; panel (b) shows the AOD using the standard level 2 aggregation technique, while (c) and (d) show the result of techniques designed to increasingly mitigate the effects of the bow-tie distortion on the data. Panel (d) clearly shows the greatest similarity in structure between the AOD features/cloud gaps with the true-color image. Pixels without retrievals are shaded in gray.
