Broadband Emissivity (BBE)

Data Access
Overview
BBE

The GLASS 1 km broadband emissivity (BBE) product is derived from MODIS albedo product (MCD43B3), and the 5 km BBE product is derived from daily AVHRR reflectance product (AVH09). The spectral range of BBE is 8-13.5µ. The 1 km BBE product is a tile-based sinusoidal projection and the 5 km BBE product is CMG projection.
