I used the PAR from Aqua MODIS and SeaWiFS, I wonder if anyone knows and can tell me from where to obtain the reflectance of Par? (from Edo, or from where?)
I really need this information
Thanks in advance.
PAR is Ed[0+] integrated over 400-700nm. I don't think you can convert PAR to a reflectance. You would have to do the spectral integration of Eu[0+]/Ed[0+] as a reflectance. I think that would effectively be spectrally integrated surface albedo. There is no predefined algorithm in SeaDAS to do this. I could imagine some methods to estimate this for clear-sky conditions. What is the purpose?
