Status of Terra MODIS and Aqua Modis [link]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
Nearly identical copies of the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) have been operating onboard the Earth Observing System (EOS) Terra and Aqua satellites for 34 and 5 months respectively. Both are performing as designed. Sensitivities, with minor exceptions, are better than specified. Short- and long-term stability is very good. Trending of the Terra sensor has revealed degradation of the solar diffuser and the response of several VIS bands of a few percent per year.
