LSA-421

MSG Daily Fraction of Vegetation Cover (MDFVC)
Fractional Vegetation Cover (FVC) defines an important structural property of a plant canopy, which corresponds to the complement to unity of the gap fraction at nadir direction, accounting for the amount of vegetation distributed in a horizontal perspective.

LSA-422

MSG 10-days Fraction of Vegetation Cover (MTFVC)
Fractional Vegetation Cover (FVC) defines an important structural property of a plant canopy, which corresponds to the complement to unity of the gap fraction at nadir direction, accounting for the amount of vegetation distributed in a horizontal perspective.

LSA-423

MSG Daily Leaf Area Index (MDLAI)
Leaf Area Index (LAI) is a dimensionless variable [m2/m2], which defines an important structural property of a plant canopy. LAI is defined as one half the total leaf area per unit ground area (Chen and Black, 1992). It provides complementary information to the FVC, accounting for the surface of leaves contained in a vertical column normalized by its cross-sectional area.

LSA-425

MSG Daily Fraction of Absorved Photosyntethic Active Radiation (MDfAPAR)
Fraction of Absorbed Photosynthetically Active Radiation (FAPAR) defines the fraction of PAR (400-700 nm) absorbed by the green parts of the canopy, and thus expresses the canopy's energy absorption capacity. FAPAR depends both on canopy structure, leaf and soil optical properties and irradiance conditions.

LSA-410

Vegetation Index (ENDVI10)
The MetOp-AVHRR S10 or "ENDVI10" are near-global, 10-daily composite images which are synthesized from the "best available" observations registered in the course of every "dekad" by the orbiting earth observation system MetOp-AVHRR. The composites represent a Normalized Difference Vegetation Index and are distributed together with a set of ancillary dataset layers (surface reflectances, sun and view angles, quality indicators) as part of EUMETSAT LSA SAF program.
