Abstract
The Earth surface reflectance is required for retrieval of many land parameters. In this paper we attempt a solution to the problem of retrieval of surface reflectance by exploiting the synergy of TERRA and AQUA MODIS data. The algorithm was applied to MODIS data both in Beijing and UK. The relative error of Aerosol Optical Thickness values derived compared with AERONET data is less than 10%. This method could be used over various ground surfaces, including high reflective surface.
