These data have been created by the Joint Nature Conservation Committee (JNCC) as part of a Defra NCEA project to produce a regional, and ultimately national, system for detecting a change in habitat conditions at a land parcel level. The first stage of the project is focused on Yorkshire, UK, and therefore the dataset includes granules and scenes covering Yorkshire and surrounding areas only. The dataset contains the following indices derived from Defra and JNCC Sentinel-1 Analysis Ready Data.

RVI and RVIv files are generated for Sentinel-1 orbit 132 (ascending) every 12 days.

Indices have been generated using the Defra and JNCC Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2 ARD for the granules and scenes described above. As the project continues, JNCC will expand the geographical coverage of this dataset and will provide continuous updates as ARD becomes available.
