MCD43A3.006 MODIS Albedo Daily 500m (MODIS/006/MCD43A3)

Version V006

The MCD43A3 V6 Albedo Model dataset is a daily 16-day product. It provides both directional hemispherical reflectance (black sky albedo) and bihemispherical reflectance (white sky albedo) for each of the MODIS surface reflectance bands (band 1 through band 7) as well as 3 broad spectrum bands (visible, near infrared, and shortwave). Each 500m/pixel daily image is generated using 16 days of data, centered on the given day. A quality band is also provided for each of the 10 albedo bands.
