In this paper a sequential time-varying maximum likelihood classifier is applied on coarse resolution MODIS surface reflectance data. It is shown that good class separability can be obtained after considering only one year of data. Finally it is shown that after NDVI, band 2 has the highest separability of all the MODIS land bands, and band 6 has the lowest separability for the presented case study.
