FY3A VIRR Land Surface Reflectance Factor Level 2 Product

Abstract: VIRR Land Surface Reflectance Factor:

VIRR Land Surface Reflectance Factor products were retrieved from VIRR L1B products through the correction of the gaseous absorption, Rayleigh and aerosols scattering, and the couples between them. The data in the products include VIRR channel 1 ,2, 7, 8 and channel 9 land surface reflectance factor and processing ID.

Purpose: VIRR Land Surface Reflectance Factor:

Used to derive the land surface BRDF model coefficients and the land surface albedo products?could be used in the global ecosystem and environment monitoring.
