Normalized Difference Vegetation Index CDR

The Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) Climate Data Record (CDR) provides a consistent, long-term record of global surface vegetation coverage activity based on remotely sensed observations. NDVI values come from surface reflectance calculations in the red and near infrared spectral bands captured by Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR). This CDR produces daily output on a 0.05° by 0.05° grid using data from 1981–present.
