MODIS/Terra Leaf Area Index/FPAR 8-Day L4 Global 500m SIN Grid V006

Version 006
  • Abstract
    The MOD15A2H version 6 MODIS Level 4, Combined Fraction of Photosynthetically Active Radiation (FPAR), and Leaf Area Index (LAI) product is an 8-day composite data set with 500 meter pixel size. The algorithm chooses the “best” pixel available from all the acquisitions of the Terra sensor from within the 8- day period. LAI is defined as the one-sided green leaf area per unit ground area in broadleaf canopies and as one-half the total needle surface area per unit ground area in coniferous canopies. FPAR is defined as the fraction of incident photosynthetically active radiation (400-700nm) absorbed by the green elements of a vegetation canopy.The LAI product has attained stage 2 validation and the FPAR product has attained stage 1 Validation.
