MODIS/Terra+Aqua BRDF/Albedo Quality 16-Day L3 Global 500m SIN Grid V005
Entry ID: MCD43A25

[ Get Data ]

Summary
Abstract: The MODerate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) BRDF/Albedo Quality product (MCD43A2) describes the overall condition of the other BRDF and Albedo products. The MCD43A2 product contains 16 days of data at 500-meter spatial resolution provided in a level-3 gridded data set in Sinusoidal projection, and includes albedo quality, snow conditions, ancillary, and inversion information.
