Paper Abstract

The study chose Terra MODIS (MODerate resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) data over the Tibetan Plateau and its adjacent area during June 10 and August 28, 2004 to derive albedo with compositive inversion and full inversion. Results revealed that compositive inversion could further increase retrieval capability under the case of insufficient clear observations and greatly improve spatial continuousness of albedo over the study area; accuracy of retrievals with compositive inversion was fairly equivalent to those with magnitude inversion, excluding area where was large and without any clear observations; actual albedo distribution of the same kind of land-cover type over the study area was rather broad for the reason of its complex terrain. There is great promise for compositive inversion for further application.
