This Letter presents a formula for calculating broadband albedo (0.4–4.0?┬Ám) of land surfaces from Visible/Infrared Imager/Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) spectral albedos. It is based on extensive radiative transfer simulations and multivariate regression analysis. Ground measurements from several test sites confirm that the conversion formula is very accurate. The VIIRS will be launched in 2006, and this formula has been adapted as part of the VIIRS albedo retrieval algorithm.
