Global long ‐ term passive microwave satellite ‐ based retrievals of vegetation optical depth

  title={Global long ‐ term passive microwave satellite ‐ based retrievals of vegetation optical depth},
  author={Yi Y. Liu and Richard de Jeu and Matthew F. McCabe and Jason P. Evans and Albert I. J. M. van Dijk},
[1] Vegetation optical depth (VOD) retrievals from three satellite‐based passive microwave instruments were merged to produce the first long‐term global microwave‐based vegetation product. The resulting VOD product spans more than two decades and shows seasonal cycles and inter‐ annual variations that generally correspond with those observed in the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI). Some notable differences exist in the long‐term… CONTINUE READING
