Climatological data

The climatological data used by the "GVPS" provides critical background and constraints within which the resulting products are derived. These data includes 6 years (bench mark years) averaged smoothed NDVI, and multi-year (24-years, from 1982 to 2005) weekly maximum and minimum NDVI and channel 4 temperature fields, mulit-years Mean GVF and standard deviation of GVF. All these climatology variables are claculated on pixel basis.
Right now, only Mean GVF data are available online in GRIB format.
