Abstract & Keywords
Abstract: In order to eliminate the influences of atmospheric scattering and absorption, terrain fluctuation, and solar-viewing geometry, coupled atmospheric-topographic-BRDF correction was performed on the Landsat 5 ortho-rectified images covering the whole of China in 2009. In this way, a new land surface reflectance product was created. The spatial resolution of this product is 30 meters. The file folder contains a data file, a quality attribute file, and a metadata file. This new product is valuable for land cover change monitoring, quantitative retrieval of land surface parameters , global change studies, etc.
Keywords: land surface reflectance; quantitative retrieval; Landsat satellite; atmospheric-terrain-BRDF coupled correction
