Summary
Abstract: The MODerate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) Reflectance product MCD43A4 provides 500 meter reflectance data adjusted using a bidirectional reflectance distribution function (BRDF) to model the values as if taken from the nadir view. These MCD43A4 data are provided every 16 days 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.
