EOPI - Albedo assessment of the potential of the ESOS-MODIS Land Surface BRDF/Albedo product for...
11 October 2006
For well instrumented field sites and for aircraft underflights, the effect of employing the MODIS albedo product on the accuracy of the derived cloud albedo and cloud optical thickness will be assessed. Atmospherically corrected "at surface" directional reflectance from MERIS data will be used to assess the accuracy of the MODIS BRDF model as well as to derive BRDF/albedo directly from MERIS.
