Summary
Abstract: The MODerate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) BRDF/Albedo Quality product (MCD43A2) describes the overall condition of the other BRDF and Albedo
products. MCD43A2 data are 16-day composites at 500-meter 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.
