What is the difference between level 2 and level 3 data?

Level 2 data are Geophysical parameter data.  For MODIS this is distributed in 5 minute pieces referred to as granules. Level 3 processing produces Earth-gridded geophysical parameter data, which have been averaged, gridded, or otherwise rectified or composited in time and space. For more information on the overall structure of MODIS files please see the FAQ on the Ladsweb site.
