Abstract : The MODIS BRDF/Albedo Product will provide multi-band BRDF parameters and albedo measures at 1 km resolution globally every 16 days, utilizing both MODIS and MISR data. The BRDF models to be used are kernal driven semi-empirical models based mostly on Ross and Li kernels. These are capable of fitting directional data observed for different land cover types by Kimes as well.
