Summary
Abstract: This product has been decommissioned.

Every 16 days, the MODIS BRDF/Albedo Product (MOD43B) algorithm relies on
multi-date, atmospherically corrected, cloud-cleared data and a semi-empirical kernel-driven bidirectional reflectance model to determine a global set of parameters describing the Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function (BRDF) of the land surface. These one kilometer gridded ... View entire text
