VNP43C2 CMG BRDF/Albedo Model Snow-Free Parameters Product

VIIRS User Guide Collection 1

This Guide is a living document that describes the VIIRS BRDF and Albedo Products. The purpose of the document is to give the potential user an understanding of the VNP43 products and the current state of the data in those products.

Note: Users are urged to use the band specific quality flags to isolate the highest quality full inversion results for their own science applications. 

This product is similar to the VNP43C1 BRDF model parameters at a 0.05 degree spatial resolution in global files in a geographic (lat/long) projection, but are only computed from the underlying 30arc-second snow-free retrievals.
