The “Albedo” Scientific Expertise Centre (SEC) brings together teams from CNRM, Cesbio and Inra developing mapping of spectral and broadband surface albedos. The users are the scientific community involved in energy balances and change detection.
The product resulting from the Albedo SEC is updated with a decadal to monthly frequency. It has a resolution of 10 to 20 m and covers France and the selected areas for Sentinel 2 levels 2A and 3A production.
The data used come from Sentinel 2 and Landsat 8 high-resolution optical imagery.
