NOAA Climate Data Record Normalized Difference Vegetation IndexEntry ID: NOAA_CDR_NDVI
Abstract: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Climate Data Records (CDR) provide historical climate information using data from weather satellites. This dataset contains daily Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) derived from surface reflectance data acquired by the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) sensor. This long-term record spans from 1981 to 2013 and utilizes AVHRR data from seven NOAA polar orbiting satellites: NOAA 7, 9, 11, 14, 16, and 18. This NDVI collection provides the global change and resource management communities with vegetation data for historical trend analysis and vegetation monitoring studies for land surfaces around the globe.
Purpose: Provides the global change and resource management communities with vegetation data for historical trend analysis and vegetation monitoring studies for land surfaces around the globe.
