MODIS/Terra+Aqua BRDF/Albedo Quality 16-Day L3 Global 1km SIN Grid V005
Entry ID: MCD43B2

Abstract: The MODerate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) BRDF/Albedo Quality product (MCD43B2) describes the overall condition of the other BRDF and Albedo products. MCD43B2 data are 16-day composites at 1-kilometer spatial resolution provided as a level-3 gridded product in the Sinusoidal projection and include albedo quality, snow conditions, ancillary information, and inversion information.

Both Terra and Aqua data are used in the generation of this product, providing the highest probability for quality input data.
