Vegetation Parameters Products
The VP CCI+ data sets will be made available via CEDA .
The figure below illustrates the general concept of the data sets produced during the three cycles of this project. It is organized with progressive inclusion of sensors, spatial and temporal coverage and resolution, with the dimensions of the test datasets (TDS) and climate research data packages (CRDP) illustrated. The initial emphasis is on the implementation of an innovative approach, gradually shifting towards selection and optimization for an operational context. The first cycle is distributed into an initial product validation and algorithm selection exercise, followed by the development of the baseline algorithm.
The data sets are further defined in the table below. The selected sites include the following locations for which ground data is available or which are representative of global conditions (see also Figure 4):
- Direct 2.1: 140 sites with ground data for specific campaigns, 2000-2021
- GBOV: 23 sites with multi-temporal ground data, 2013-2019
- AMMA: 13 sites with multi-temporal ground data, 2005-2015
- LANDVAL v1.1: 720 sites for product inter-comparison
- Sites defined by the CRG
The data sets are further defined in the table below.
