MODIS/Aqua Gross Primary Productivity 8-Day L4 Global 1km SIN Grid V005
Entry ID: MYD17A2

Abstract: The MODerate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) Gross Primary Productivity (GPP) product (MYD17A2) is a cumulative composite of GPP values based on the radiation use efficiency concept that may be used as inputs to data models for calculating terrestrial energy, carbon, water cycle processes, and biogeochemistry of vegetation. MYD17A2 is an 8-day composite at 1-kilometer spatial resolution provided as a gridded level-4 product in the Sinusoidal projection.
