Description: The MODIS nadir bidirectional reflectance distribution function adjusted reflectance (NBAR) product (MCD43B4), 1 km spatial resolution and a composited 16 day temporal resolution. Question: I want to download this product for analysis, but can not find it in NASA (https://lpdaac.usgs.gov/). However, I can find the data description in MODIS (https://modis.gsfc.nasa.gov/data/dataprod/mod43.php). So, how can I download it?
Interestingly it seems this product did not survive the transition from Version 5 to Version 6 processing and production was terminated after March 14, 2017.
According to the slides presented by Crystal Shaaf at the ESA LPVE 2014 Land Product Validation and Evaluation Workshop this product was considered redundant and was discontinued in Collection 6 in favor of MCD43A 500m products. (Zhuosen Wang et al. Evaluation and Inter-comparison of MODIS and VIIRS Measures of Daily Albedo - ESA LPVE 2014, January 28-30, 2014)
Initially 1km, increased to 500m gridded retrievals (MCD43A) - MCD43B became lower quality average of underlying 500m - MCD43B dropped in V006
Collection 5 MCD43B4 data from February 18, 2000 up to March 14, 2017 can be downloaded from the Chiba University archive.
Collection 6 500m MCD43A4 is available via HTTPS from USGS LP DAAC.
