Abstract: [1] A new dynamic-statistical parameterization of snow-free land surface albedo is developed using the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) products of broadband black-sky and white-sky reflectance and vegetation and the North American and Global Land Data Assimilation System (LDAS) outputs of soil moisture during [2000][2001][2002][2003]. The dynamic component represents the predictable albedo dependences on solar zenith angle, surface soil moisture, fractional vegetation cover, leaf plus st…
