ASRVN Data

The AERONET-based Surface Reflectance Validation Network (ASRVN) was originally designed as a validation tool for the moderate resolution (~ 1 km) global surface reflectance products from the EOS sensors. MODIS and MISR L1B (geolocated and calibrated) data are received operationally from the Goddard and Langley Distributed Active Archive Centers (DAACs), respectively, subset into 32 x 32 km2; areas around more than 160 AERONET sites worldwide. Upon receiving AERONET water vapor and aerosol information, the ASRVN performs an automatic atmospheric correction deriving the BRF, albedo, top-of-canopy vegetation index, and radiative fluxes for each instrument independently. The links provided here are for MODIS ASRVN data.

For more information about this dataset, refer to the draft publication submitted to TGARS Atmospheric Correction at AERONET Locations: A New Science and Validation Data Set.
