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

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.
