  • Abstract
    The Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) 1-km Global Land 10-Day Composites data set project is a component of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) AVHRR Pathfinder Program. The project is a collaborative effort between the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), NASA, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), the European Space Agency (ESA), Australia's Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO), and 30 international ground receiving stations. The project represents an international effort to archive and distribute the 1-km AVHRR composites of the entire global land surface to scientific researchers and to the general public. The data set is comprised of a time series of global 10-day normalized difference vegetation index composites. The composites are generated from radiometrically calibrated, atmospherically corrected, and geometrically corrected daily AVHRR observations. The time series begins in April 1992 and continues for specific time periods.
