This Algorithm Theoretical Basis Document (ATBD) describes the algorithm to produce global Leaf Area Index (LAI) and Fraction of Photosynthetically Active Radiation (FPAR) absorbed by vegetation from atmospherically corrected surface reflectances. The MOD15 LAI and FPAR products are 1 km at launch products provided on a daily and 8 days basis. The algorithm consists of a main procedure that exploits the spectral information content of MODIS surface reflectances at up to 7 spectral bands. Should… CONTINUE READING
