Summary
Abstract: The MODerate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) Albedo product
(MCD43C3) provides data describing both directional hemispherical reflectance (black-sky albedo) and bihemispherical reflectance (white-sky albedo). MCD43C3 data are 16-day composites provided as a level-3 product projected to a 0.05 degree (5600-meter) latitude/longitude Climate Modeling Grid (CMG).
