ISLSCP II NOAA 5-year Average Monthly Snow-free Albedo from AVHRR
Entry ID: ISLSCP_II_NOAA_ALBEDO_5yr_959_1


Summary
Abstract: The objective of this work was to produce a monthly climatology of broadband surface albedos for use in global numerical weather prediction models at the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP). Monthly means of clear-sky, surface, broadband, snow-free albedos for overhead sun illumination angle were determined using data from a five-year period from April 1985-December 1987 and ...
