The MVIRI Albedo and Uncertainties demonstration dataset contains the broadband surface albedo as retrieved from the visible channel of the Meteosat Visible and Infrared Imager (MVIRI) operated on board Meteosat First Generation (MFG) spacecrafts. The channel is centered around 0.7 µm but the spectral coverage of this channel is very broad. The dataset is produced for 2 of the 7 Meteosat satellites, Meteosat -5 and Meteosat-7, that were operated during the period between 1991 and 2007. While Meteosat-7 was, during the considered period, positioned above 0° longitude, Meteosat-5 was moved from 0° to 63° longitude in support of the INDOEX Experiment in 1998, with continued service in the course of the Indian Ocean Data Coverage (IODC) mission. The albedo data was retrieved from the MVIRI fundamental climate data record; both were produced as part of the FIDUCEO (Fidelity and uncertainty in climate data records from Earth Observations) EU Horizon 2020 project.
