This dataset provides estimated solar-induced chlorophyll fluorescence (SIF) of specific vegetation types and total SIF under clear-sky and real/cloudy conditions at a resolution of 4 km for the Midwest USA. The estimates are 8-day averaged daily means over the 2018 crop growing season for the time period 2018-05-01 to 2018-09-29. SIF of a specific vegetation type (i.e., corn, soybean, grass/pasture, forest) was expressed as the product of photosynthetically active radiation (PAR), the fraction of photosynthetically active radiation absorbed by the canopy (fPAR), and canopy SIF yield (SIFyield) for each vegetation type. Uncertainty of each variable was also calculated and is provided. These components of the SIF model were derived using a TROPOspheric Monitoring Instrument (TROPOMI) dataset, the USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service Cropland Data Layer, and the MODIS MCD15A2H 8-day 500 m fPAR product. These data could be used to improve estimates of vegetation productivity and vegetation stress.
