This version four product has been decommissioned.
The MODerate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) BRDF/Albedo Model Parameters product (MCD43C1) contains the weighting parameters for the models used to derive the Albedo and NBAR products (MCD43C3 and MCD43C4). The models support the spatial relationship and parameter characterization best describing the differences in radiation due to ... the scattering (anisotropy) of each pixel, relying on multi-date, atmospherically corrected, cloud-cleared input data measured over 16-day periods.
Both Terra and Aqua data are used in the generation of this product, providing the highest probability for quality input data and designating it as an "MCD," meaning "Combined," product.
