Short Name:

MODIS/Terra+Aqua BRDF Model Parameters Daily NRT L3 Global 1km SIN Grid


The MODIS Near Real Time (NRT) Combined Terra and Aqua combined Multi-Angle Implementation of Atmospheric Correction (MAIAC) Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function (BRDF) Model Parameters gridded Level 3 product (MCD19A3N) produced every 8 days at 1 kilometer (km) pixel resolutions. The MCD19A3N product provides three coefficients (weights) of the RossThick/Li-Sparse (RTLS) BRDF model that can be used to describe the anisotropy of each pixel. The retrievals represent cloud-free and low aerosol conditions.
