DSCOVR_EPIC_L2_MAIAC_01

EPIC Multi-Angle Implementation of Atmospheric Correction (MAIAC) product contains atmospherically corrected spectral bidirectional reflectance factors (BRF, or surface reflectance) and bidirectional reflectance distribution function (BRDF) represented by 3 parameters of the Ross-Thick Li-Sparse model. It also provides several atmospheric quantities including cloud mask and aerosol optical depth (AOD) required for atmospheric correction. The parameters are distributed at 10 km sinusoidal grid and 1 to 2 hour temporal frequency.
