Summary
Abstract: The MODIS 250 m land-water mask (Short Name: MOD44W) is an improvement over the existing MODIS Nadir Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function (BRDF)-Adjusted Reflectance (NBAR) and MODIS land cover-based global land-water mask (Salomon et al., 2004). The MODIS NBAR and land cover–based mask was itself an improved version of the EOS DEM-based land-water mask (Logan et al., 1999). This MODIS ... View entire text
