Description

The MCD43B3 V5 Albedo product provides 1-kilometer data describing both directional hemispherical reflectance (black-sky albedo) at local solar noon and bihemispherical reflectance (white-sky albedo). These albedo quantities are produced from the 16-day anisotropy models provided in MCD43B1 and represent averages of the underlying 500m values. If black-sky albedos at different solar zenith angles are required, then the MCD43B1 values should be used directly to generate them.
