MODIS/Aqua Gross Primary Productivity 8-Day L4 Global 500m SIN Grid V006

The MYD17A2H Version 6 Gross Primary Productivity (GPP) product is a cumulative 8-day composite of values with 500 meter (m) pixel size based on the radiation use efficiency concept that can be potentially used as inputs to data models to calculate terrestrial energy, carbon, water cycle processes, and biogeochemistry of vegetation. The data product includes information about GPP and Net Photosynthesis (PSN). The PSN band values are the GPP minus the Maintenance Respiration (MR). The data product also contains a PSN Quality Control (QC) layer. The quality layer contains quality information for both the GPP and the PSN. Improvements/Changes from Previous Versions * The product uses updated Biome Property Look-Up Tables (BPLUT) and an updated version of the daily Global Modeling and Assimilation Office (GMAO) meteorological data. * The products are now generated at the native resolution of 500 m using the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) Leaf Area Index (LAI)/Fraction of Photosynthetically Active Radiation (FPAR) (MYD15A2H) (https://doi.org/10.5067/modis/myd15a2h.006) 8-day composite at 500 m resolution.
