Normalized Difference Vegetation Index CDR

Configuration Item ID: 01B-20b

This dataset contains a gridded daily Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) derived from the Surface Reflectance Climate Data Record (CDR). The data record spans from 1981 to 10 days before the present using data from NOAA polar orbiting satellites [Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) and the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS)]. Output is generated daily on a 0.05° by 0.05° global grid.

To help the project receive continued support, updates, and improvement, tell us how you use NDVI CDR data by completing our optional User Registration Form.
