Meteosat Surface Albedo - MFG - Indian Ocean 63 degrees E

Abstract:
Ten-day composite surface albedo in the Meteosat VIS band at pixel resolution. The Meteosat Surface Albedo (MSA) product contains an estimation of surface albedos and corresponding uncertainty acquired under direct (black sky albedo) and perfectly diffuse (white sky albedo) illumination derived from observations acquired by the Meteosat First Generation (MFG) radiometer in the VIS band. This product is derived from any archived MFG observations, i.e., starting in 1998 (Meteosat 5) for the longitude 63 degree East mission (IODC) mission. The MSA product is derived in the Meteosat VIS band every 10 days at the VIS pixel resolution, i.e., about 3 km. The HDF4 format is provided as a tar file with albedo (around 150MB) and ancillary (around 570MB) data included. This is a Thematic Climate Data Record (TCDR). Note: The associated geolocation file should be downloaded from the Online Resources under the Categorisation tab.
