[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The MODerate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) BRDF/Albedo Model Parameters product (MCD43A1) contains three-dimensional (3D) data sets providing users with weighting parameters for the models used to derive the Albedo and BRDF products (MCD43A3, MCD43A4). The models support the spatial relationship and parameter characterization best describing the differences in radiation due to ... View entire text
