Summary
Abstract: The level-4 MODIS global Leaf Area Index (LAI) and Fraction of Photosynthetically Active Radiation (FPAR) product is composited every 8 days at 1-kilometer resolution on a Sinusoidal grid. Science Data Sets provided in the MOD15A2 include LAI, FPAR, a quality rating, and standard deviation for each variable.

The LAI variable defines the number of equivalent layers of leaves relative to a unit of ... View entire text
