This product contains the atmospherically corrected water albedo product of a Sentinel-2 Level 1C scene. A water-land-cloud mask based on analysis of the atmospherically corrected scene on water, land and cloud specific spectral properties is also delivered.
The product is initially provided for the region of Hamburg.
The albedo product consists of the Sentinel-2 Level 1C bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 8a, 11, and 12 at 10 m spatial resolution, where a change of 1 digit is equivalent to a change of 0.0001 (0.01 %) in reflectance. The mask product has 10 m spatial resolution with values 0 (land), 1 (water), and 2 (cloud).
File format of value added product: ENVI BIL
Sentinel-2 is a wide-swath, high-resolution, multi-spectral imaging mission developed by ESA as part of the Copernicus Programme, supporting the Copernicus Land Monitoring services, including the monitoring of vegetation, soil and water cover, as well as the observation of inland waterways and coastal areas. The full Sentinel-2 mission comprises two polar-orbiting satellites in the same orbit, phased at 180° to each other.
