MODIS/Terra Vegetation Indices Monthly L3 Global 0.05Deg CMG V006

Version 006
  • Abstract
    The MOD13C2 version 6 product provides a Vegetation Index (VI) value at a per pixel basis. There are 2 primary vegetation layers. The first is the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) which is referred to as the continuity index to the existing National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration-Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (NOAA-AVHRR) derived NDVI. The second vegetation layer is the Enhanced Vegetation Index (EVI), which has improved sensitivity over high biomass regions. The Climate Modeling Grid (CMG) consists of 3,600 rows and 7,200 columns of 5,600 meter (m) pixels. The MOD13A2 product (1 kilometer) is used to produce this monthly VI product. Nominally each CMG consists of 286 tiles which are reprojected into the geographic projection, spatially averaged and Quality Assurance (QA) filtered. The MOD13C2 has data fields for the NDVI, EVI, VI QA, reflectance data, angular information, and spatial statistics such as mean, standard deviation, and number of used input pixels at the 0.05 degree CMG resolution. Validation at stage 3 has been achieved for all MODIS MOD/MYD13 vegetation products.
