MODIS/Terra+Aqua BRDF/Albedo Snow-free Quality 16-Day L3 Global 0.05Deg CMG V004Entry ID: MCD43C24
Abstract: This version four product has been decommissioned.
The MODerate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) BRDF/Albedo Snow-free Quality product (MCD43C2) is similar to the MCD43C1 Parameters product except that it describes only snow-free conditions in the other Albedo and NBAR products. It includes model parameters and the overall quality of snow-free pixels. The MCD43C2 product contains 16 ... days of data provided in a level-3 data set projected to a 0.05° (5600 meters) latitude/longitude Climate Modeling Grid (CMG).
Both Terra and Aqua data are used in the generation of this product, providing the highest probability for quality input data and designating it as an "MCD," meaning "Combined," product.
