International Satellite Land Surface Climatology Project Initiative II (ISLSCP2): Multiple Resolution of a 17-year Record of the Fourier-Adjusted, Sensor and Solar Zenith Angle Corrected, Interpolated, Reconstructed (FASIR) Adjusted Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) and Derived Biophysical Parameter Fields
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. The FASIR NDVI data set was produced and provided by Dr. Sietse Los from the Department of Geography, University of Wales at Swansea. The production of the dataset 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. AVHRR FASIR data is restricted to academic research use only.
