MISR Level 3 Component Global Land seasonal product in netCDF format V004

Metadata Updated: March 23, 2019

The MISR Level 3 Quarterly (seasonal) Component Global Land Product in netCDF format contains a statistical summary of directional hemispherical reflectance (DHR), photosynthetically active spectral region (DHR-PAR), DHR for near-infrared band (DHR-NIR), fractional absorbed photosynthetically active radiation (FPAR), DHR-based normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) and land surface bidirectional reflectance factor (BRF) model parameters, classified into six vegetated and one non-vegetated types. This data product is a global summary of the Level 2 land/surface parameters of interest averaged over a quarter (seasonal) and reported on a geographic grid, with resolution of 0.5 degree by 0.5 degree. The seasons are winter (December from previous year, January, February), spring (March, April, May), summer (June, July, August), and fall (September, October, November).The MISR instrument consists of nine pushbroom cameras which measure radiance in four spectral bands. Global coverage is achieved in nine days. The cameras are arranged with one camera pointing toward the nadir, four cameras pointing forward and four cameras pointing aftward. It takes 7 minutes for all nine cameras to view the same surface location. The view angles relative to the surface reference ellipsoid, are 0, 26.1, 45.6, 60.0, and 70.5 degrees. The spectral band shapes are nominally gaussian, centered at 443, 555, 670, and 865 nm.
