Greenland snow albedo from MODIS Terra and Aqua, 2000-2010, adjusted for solar zenith angle biases

Summary

This dataset contains the original (unadjusted) and adjusted Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) albedo datasets for Greenland. These data are monthly averages for 2000-2010, and 8-day datasets for the same period. Data are stored in NetCDF format on the 0.05 degree climate modeling grid. Please see the related link listed below for more information regarding data collection and processing.
