Global Land Surface Phenology Metrics derived from AVHRR, SPOT, and MODIS 1981-presentEntry ID: MEaSUREs_VIP_Phenology
Abstract: MEaSUREs VIP Land Surface Phenology products are supported by a NASA Making Earth Science Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) collaborative agreement. Global phenology metrics based on the MEaSURES VIP EVI (Enhanced Vegetation Index) products are being developed as a consistent, high quality, and well characterized Earth Science Data Record (ESDR) using long term data from ... multiple satellites in support of global change studies. In collaboration with researchers at Boston University, University of Hawaii, NOAA/ERT Inc., and the USGS-EROS LP-DAAC, an end to end system is currently being developed to support science algorithms that derive consistent phenology from AVHRR, SPOT, MODIS, and eventually VIIRS. The project includes validation and quality assurance analysis of these ESDRs in collaboration with the US-National Phenology Network (US-NPN) and the US-Southwest Regional Phenology Network (US-SWRPN).
Purpose: The MEaSUREs VIP Phenology product provides long term, consistent, and high quality vegetation records enable climate change study, and land surface change characterization.
