Validation summary for surface albedo climatology by KNMI
(last update: 19 June 2018)

The SCIAMACHY surface albedo climatology contains the Lambertian-equivalent reflectivity of the Earth's surface, for each month of the year and for in total 34 wavelength bands ranging from 328 nm to 2314 nm. The database has been compared to the TOMS, GOME-1, OMI, MERIS, and GOME-2 surfaces albedo databases (Tilstra et al., 2017) [PDF]. The SCIAMACHY surface albedo values compare very well to those of the other surface albedo databases.

The current version of the database contains the surface albedo for the following wavelengths: 328, 335, 340, 354, 367, 380, 388, 425, 440, 463, 494, 510, 526, 546, 555, 564, 614, 640, 670, 685, 697, 712, 758, 772, 862, 875, 1030, 1053, 1245, 1557, 1593, 1630, 1670, and 2314 nm.
