The remote sensing technique is widely used in Antarctica, and MODIS is one of the most important satellite sensors in the domain of remote sensing. In the beginning of this article, MODIS (moderate resolution imaging spectroradiomete), including the information of its satellites, its system constitute and hardware characteristic, its large spectra and usual applications are briefly introduced. Then, it is the particular introduction of MODIS’s use in Antarctica, which refers to the Antarctic physiognomy, Antarctic atmosphere and Antarctic ocean, with citing many examples. At last, it views the development of MODIS and its serious sensors in the future, including the improved applications in Antarctica.
