VIIRS/NPP BRDF/Albedo Parameter 2 Band M2 Daily L3 Global 30 ArcSec CMG V001

Metadata Updated: December 4, 2020

The Suomi National Polar-Orbiting Partnership (S-NPP) NASA Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function (BRDF) and Albedo Model Parameter 2 Band M2 product (VNP43D05) is produced daily using 16 days of data at 30 arc second (1,000 meter) resolution. Data are temporally weighted to the ninth day, which is reflected in the file name. The VNP43D product suite is provided in a Climate Modeling Grid (CMG), which covers the entire globe for use in climate simulation models. Due to the large file size, each VNP43D product contains just one data layer. Each of the three model parameters (isotropic, volumetric, and geometric) for each of the nine VIIRS moderate resolution bands along with the visible, near-infrared (NIR), and shortwave bands included in the VNP43MA1 (https://doi.org/10.5067/VIIRS/VNP43MA1.001) product is stored in a separate file as VNP43D01 through VNP43D36. In addition to the bands included in VNP43MA1, this product suite includes model parameters for the VIIRS Day/Night Band (DNB) as VNP43D37 through VNP43D39. Details regarding methodology are available on the VNP43MA1 product page and in the Algorithm Theoretical Basis Document (ATBD).

VNP43D05 is the BRDF volumetric parameter for VIIRS band M2 (0.445 μm). The volumetric parameter, in conjunction with the isotropic and geometric parameters, is used to derive the BRDF/Albedo values for VIIRS band M2.
