Summary
Abstract: Decommissioned product.

The MODerate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) Albedo product (MCD43B3) provides 1-kilometer data describing both directional hemispherical reflectance (black-sky albedo) and bi-hemispherical reflectance (white-sky albedo). These MCD43B3 data are 16-day composites provided as a level-3 gridded product in the Sinusoidal projection.

Both Terra and Aqua data are used in the generation of this product, providing the highest probability for quality input data.
