This dataset provides the average Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) at 1-km resolution over the north slope of Alaska, USA, for the growing season (June-August) of each year from 2000-2015, and NDVI trends for the same period. The dataset presents growing-season averages and trends from two sources: 1) derived from 1-km, 8-day data from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) NDVI (MOD13A2) product, and 2) predicted by the Coupled Carbon and Nitrogen model (CCaN). CCaN is a mass balance carbon and nitrogen model that was driven by 1-km MODIS surface temperature and climate data for the North Slope of Alaska and parameterized using model-data fusion, where model predictions were ecologically constrained with historical ecological ground and satellite-based data.
