MODIS/Terra+Aqua NADIR BRDF-Adjusted Reflectance 16-Day L3 Global 500m SIN Grid V005Entry ID: MCD43A45
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 they were taken from nadir view. The MCD43A4 product contains 16 days of data provided in a level-3 gridded data set in Sinusoidal projection.
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.
Version-5 MODIS BRDF & Albedo products have attained Validation Stage 3.
Change Points of Interest
500m product now available
Quality information stored as a separate product (MCD43A2)
Solar Zenith Angle changed from mean to angle at local solar noon
Reduced file volume: internal compression
Phased production strategy: Produced every 8 days with 16 days of acquisition (i.e., production period 2001001 includes acquisition between Days 001 and 016, production period 2001009 includes acquisition between Days 009 and 024)
