By: LP DAAC

The MODIS version 6 BRDF/Albedo (MCD43)products are no longer available from the LP DAAC. The decision to remove the data was done in response to the discovery of faulty QA information that potentially affects all MCD43 version 6 products. The following notice contains detailed information concerning the MCD43 QA issue: http://landweb.nascom.nasa.gov/cgi-bin/QA_WWW/displayCase.cgi?esdt=MCD43&caseNum=PM_MCD43_15321&caseLocation=cases_data&type=C6

Upon resolution of the issue, the MCD43 version 6 data will be reprocessed and available from the LP DAAC. Continue to visit the LP DAAC home page for future announcements about when the data are available.
