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

Liu, Yi Y.; de Jeu, Richard A.M.; McCabe, Matthew F.; Evans, Jason; Van Dijk, Albert


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 trends:...[Show more]
