  • Abstract
    The MCD43D25 Version 6 Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function and Albedo (BRDF/Albedo) Model Parameter data set is a daily 16-day product. This product incorporates the Climate Modeling Grid (CMG) structure in which each file geographically covers the entire earth rather than the 10 degree x 10 degree latitude and longitude tiling system utilized by the standard MODIS land products. Unlike the standard CMG pixel resolution of 5600 meters the MCD43D products are 1000 meters, consequently, because of the large file size each product contains just one layer. The Julian date in the granule ID of each specific file represents the 9th day of the 16 day composite period, and consequently the observations are weighted to estimate the BRDF/Albedo for that day. The layer in the MCD43D25 is the Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function isotropic parameter for the MODIS near infrared broadband. This isotropic parameter, in conjunction with the volumetric and geometric parameters, is used to derive the Albedo and BRDF value for the MODIS near infrared broadband. The MODIS BRDF/ALBEDO products have achieved stage 3 validation.
