ESA Land Cover Climate Change Initiative (Land_Cover_cci): Land Surface Seasonality Products

Status: Completed
Online Status: ONLINE
Publication State: Published
Publication Date: 2016-08-12


This dataset consists of Land Surface Seasonality products produced as part of the ESA Land Cover Climate Change Initiative (CCI) project. The products are Vegetation Greenness (NDVI), Snow Occurrence and Burned Area Occurrence.

On a per pixel basis, these climatological variables reflect, along the year, the average trajectory and the inter-annual variability of a land surface feature over the 1999-2012 period. They are built from existing long-term global datasets with high temporal frequency and moderate spatial resolution (500m-1km). They result from a compilation of 14 years of 7-day instantaneous observations into 1 temporarily aggregated profile depicting, along the year, the reference behaviour for the vegetation greenness, the snow and the BA at global scale. These products are referred to as condition products in the product user guide.
