Optimization of the ORCHIDEE albedo

Main actors: Philippe Peylin, Vladislav Bastrikov


  • Use observed satellite albedo to calibrate the current albedo scheme (MODIS albedo will be used first)
  • First change the bare soil albedo (currently a function of soil color following a color map from FAO and fixed albedo values for each color type (13))
  • Then optimize the standard coeficient for the vegetation NIR and VIS albedo to match the satellite albedo
