Paper Abstract

The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) will be one of the primary instruments observing the earth on the earth observing system scheduled for launch in mid 1998. Its 36 spectral bands ranging from 0.4 to 14.4 microns will image the entire earth. The radiometric requirements are such that the instrument's polarization sensitivity must be very well understood. This paper will describe the experimental setup, some of the experimental results and the accompanying analysis. Emphasis will be on an anomalous, 'four theta' experimental results and its explanation.
