Brest, C.L., and S.N. Goward, 1987: Deriving surface albedo measurements from narrow band satellite data. Int. J. Remote Sens., 8, 351-367, doi:10.1080/01431168708948646.

A target calibration procedure for obtaining surface albedo from satellite data is presented. The methodology addresses two key issues, the calibration of remotely-sensed, discrete wavelength, digital data and the derivation of an albedo measurement (defined over the solar short wave spectrum) from spectrally limited observations. Twenty-seven LANDSAT observations, calibrated with urban targets (building roof-tops and parking lots), are used to derive spatial and seasonal patterns of surface reflectance and albedo for four land cover types, city, suburb, farm and forest.
