I'm downloading the MODIS derived Albedo 16-Day L3 Global 500 m resolution product. I expected to have a dataset for dates every 16 days. Instead I have datasets every 8 days as can be seen in the image I uploaded.
The info on the product (link) does state:
Phased production strategy: Produced every 8 days with 16 days of acquisition (i.e., production period 2001001 includes acquisition between Days 001 and 016, production period 2001009 includes acquisition between Days 009 and 024)
So every 8 days a dataset is released which contains the previous 16 days of data? so each of these datasets have a data overlap of 8 days?
