cloud_albedo_assuming_completely_cloudy_sky means a derived (retrieved) cloud albedo in an area assuming the scene is completely cloud covered (the grid cell or satellite footprint). A phrase assuming_condition indicates that the named quantity is the value which would obtain if all aspects of the system were unaltered except for the assumption of the circumstances specified by the condition.
