Fraction of Absorbed Photosynthetically Active Radiation V2 - PROBA-V - South America

Abstract:
FAPAR quantifies the fraction of the solar radiation absorbed by plants for photosynthesis. It refers only to the green and living elements of the canopy. FAPAR is useful as input to a number of primary productivity models and is recognized as an Essential Climate Variable (ECV) by the Global Climate Observing System (GCOS). The FAPAR 1km version 2 product is derived by first calculating instantaneous estimates using a neural network and calibrated daily Top of the Canopy reflectances as input. In a second step these instantaneous estimates are composited using an asymmetric period and performing a temporal smooth and gap fill operation based on the land cover type (Evergreen Broadleaf Forest or not).
