BRDF as the intrinsic feature of surface targets, is an important parameter required by albedo inversion from multi-angle observations, especially for satellite data suit with less directional measurements. Several studies have shown up to introduce BRDF priori knowledge into albedo retrievals at different scale by spatial or temporal smoothing. Thus, it is necessary to further understand what’s the influence induced by BRDF smoothing on albedo retrieval. This work investigated effects of smoothed BRDF on albedo magnitude through case studies over North America region using operational MCD43A&C BRDF products respectively smoothed in spatial and temporal scales. Our results show that BRDF of seasonal DBF samples smoothed from daily to monthly can lead to apparent relative difference to smoothed values of 10.97%, 9.42%, 8.24% and detectable absolute differences of 0.0172, 0.0095 and 0.0035 on related albedo respectively at Near Infrared, Short Wave and Visible broadband. The spatial smoothing of BRDF from 500m to 5600m results in relative differences to smoothed values of 17.38%, 14.38%, 27.23% and absolute differences of 0.0250, 0.0139, 0.0052 for the inversed albedo at above three broadbands.
