BRDF-Albedo Model Parameters 16-Day L3 0.05Deg CMG V004
Entry ID: MCD43C24


Summary
Abstract: Decommisioned Product

The 16-day 0.05 degree global BRDF/Albedo parameter product (MCD43C2) is a level-3 Climate Modeling Grid that provides the model parameters used to create the MODIS Global Albedo product (MCD43C1). The MCD43C2 product is offered on a flat latitude/longitude grid in HDF-EOS format. Three BRDF model parameter values are given for each of 10 wavelength bands (7 MODIS Land ... View entire text
