MISR Level 3 Component Global Land Product covering a quarter (seasonal) V004Entry ID: MIL3QLS4
Abstract: The MISR Level 3 Component Global Land Product covering quarter(seasonal) contains a statistical summary of directional hemispherical reflectance (DHR), photosynthetically active spectral region (DHR-PAR), DHR for near-infrared band (DHR-NIR), fractional absorbed photosynthetically active radiation (FPAR), DHR-based normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI), and land surface bidrectional ... reflectance factor (BRF) model parameters, classified into six vegetated and one non-vegetated types. This data product is a global summary of the Level 2 land/surface parameters of interest averaged over a quarter (seasonal) and reported on a geographic grid, with resolution of 0.5 degree by 0.5 degree. The seasons are winter(December from previous year, January, February), spring (March, April, May), summer (June, July, August), and fall (September, October, November).
