MODIS/Terra+Aqua Albedo Daily L3 Global 500m SIN Grid

NRT

The MODIS Near Real Time (NRT) MCD43A3N, MODIS Combined Aqua and Terra Albedo is the daily L3 16-day composite global gridded tiled product that provides the black-sky albedo and the white-sky albedo at local solar noon for each of the 7 land bands, visible, near infra-red and the short wave bands. The albedo is retrieved for the current data day as identified in the product granule id using the BRDF/Albedo model parameters provided in the daily MCD43A1N product. The product also contains the mandatory QA dataset for each of the spectral albedo dataset in the file. Additional information at MODIS Land Science Team https://modis-land.gsfc.nasa.gov/brdf.html
