MERIS - Gap Free Leaf Area Index (LAI) - Global

Markus Tum, Kurt P. Günther, Martin Böttcher, Frédéric Baret, Michael Bittner, Carsten Brockmann & Marie Weiss
This product consists of global gap free Leaf area index (LAI) time series, based on MERIS full resolution Level1B data. It is produced as a series of 10-day composites in geographic projection at 300m spatial resolution. The processing chain comprises geometric correction, radiometric correction and pixel identification, LAI calculation with the BEAM MERIS vegetation processor, re-projection to a global grid, and temporal aggregation selecting the measurement closest to the mean value. After the LAI pre-processing...
