Normalised Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) - PROBA-V - South America

Abstract:
A ratio of the intensity of light reflected off the Earth's surface in the visible and near-infrared spectral wavelengths, which quantifies the photosynthetic capacity of the vegetation in a given pixel of land surface. The maximum value for each pixel of a composite period is used as the value for that pixel. Since cloud and other atmospheric perturbations reduce NDVI values, these are eliminated from the final composite product. Access to VEGETATION data is free of charge for all users in Africa and South/Central America and EUMETSAT Member State NMS.
