DESCRIPTION

i.albedo calculates the albedo, that is the Shortwave surface reflectance in the range of 0.3-3 micro-meters. It takes as input individual bands of surface reflectance originating from MODIS, AVHRR, Landsat or Aster satellite sensors and calculates the albedo for those. This is a precursor to r.sun and any energy-balance processing.

NOTES

It assumes MODIS product surface reflectance in [0;10000].

TODO

Maybe change input requirement of MODIS to [0.0-1.0]?

SEE ALSO
