MODIS/Terra+Aqua Nadir BRDF-Adjusted Reflectance 16-Day L3 Global 1km SIN Grid V005

Version 005
  • Abstract
    MODIS/Terra plus Aqua Nadir BRDF-Adjusted Reflectance 16-Day L3 Global 1km SIN Grid The MODerate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) Nadir BRDF Adjusted Reflectance (NBAR) product MCD43B4 provides 1-kilometer reflectance data adjusted using the bidirectional reflectance distribution function (BRDF) of MCD43B1 to model values as if they were acquired from a nadir view. MCD43B4 reflectance represents that best characterization of the surface possible from the inputs available over a 16-day period. If observations at view and illumination angles other than nadir are required, the MCD43B1 models should be used directly in the BRDF Forward Model. The MCD43B4 NBAR quantities are provided as a level-3 gridded product in the Sinusoidal projection. Both Terra and Aqua data are used to generate this product, providing the highest probability for quality input data and designating it as an "MCD," meaning "Combined," product. Version-5 MODIS BRDF and Albedo products have attained Validation Stage 3.
