Summary
Abstract: The goal of the Conterminous U.S. AVHRR project is to compile a
comprehensive time series data set of calibrated, georegistered daily
observations and biweekly maximum normalized difference vegetation index
(NDVI) composites for each annual growing season. This data set has
applications for environmental monitoring and for assessing impacts of
global climate ... View entire text
