Abstract

The Fourier-Adjusted, Sensor and Solar zenith angle corrected, Interpolated, Reconstructed (FASIR) adjusted Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) dataset was detected with the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) on-board the MetOp satellites. Derived biophysical parameter fields were generated to provide a 17-year satellite record of monthly changes in the photosynthetic activity of terrestrial vegetation. This dataset was produced and provided by Dr. Sietse Los from the Department of Geography, University of Wales at Swansea.

Title AVHRR FASIR deployed on unknown computer
Abstract This computation involved: AVHRR FASIR deployed on unknown computer. This data set was produced and provided by Dr. Sietse Los from the Department of Geography, University of Wales at Swansea. The Fourier-Adjusted, Sensor and Solar zenith angle corrected, Interpolated, Reconstructed (FASIR) adjusted Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) data set and derived biophysical parameter fields were generated to provide a 17-year, satellite record of monthly changes in the photosynthetic activity of terrestrial vegetation. The production of the FASIR NDVI data set and its associated biophysical parameters was funded by NASA's Land Surface Hydrology program and the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales (HEFCW) as a core component of the International Satellite Land Surface Climatology Project (ISLSCP) Initiative II Data Collection.
