#733 closed defect (fixed)

No valid data of vegalb_nir and vegalb_vis

In production mode on Irene for a run with FG1 and r6910, annual output of VEGALB_NIR and VEGALB_NIR gives "No Valid Data" when viewed in Ferret.

According to file_def_orchidee.xml, the variable should be printed out at a history level of 2. For this run, output_level_sechiba_history=11. Therefore, we suspect an issue with how the variable is calculated, not with how it is written out.

Unclear for the moment if this is present in other tagged versions.

This issue was fixed in r6932. The two-stream albedo scheme in r6932 calculates the surface albedo and accounts for the scattering between the background and vegetation. Vegetation albedo (without its background) is no longer calculated. Note that two-stream albedo scheme requires the background albedo, hence, background albedo can still be written to the history files but equals the prescribed values (either read from a map or PFT-specific parameter values).
