Vegetation phenology is the description of periodic plant life cycle events across the growing seasons. Vegetation phenology with remote sensing is typically monitored by means of time series of vegetation indices. Vegetation indices address the amount of green biomass and allow the differentiation of the intensity of photosynthetic activity. This in turn depends on the plant functional types and dynamics during the growing season. These time series datasets are made available as raster files with 500x 500m resolution, in ETRS89-LAEA projection corresponding to the MCD43 tiling grid, for those tiles that cover the EEA38 member countries and the United Kingdom and for two seasons in each year from 2000 onwards. It is updated in the first quarter of each year.

Metadata

Additional information

The following indices have been calculated and saved as cloud optimised geotiff (COG) images:
1. PPI at 5-day intervals
2. Time for the start of the season
3. Time for the end of the season
4. Length of the season
5. Seasonal amplitude; difference between the maximum value and the base level
6. Rate of increase at the beginning of the season
7. Rate of decrease at the end of the season
8. Large seasonal integral
9. Small seasonal integral
10. Value for the start of the season
11. Value for the end of the season
12. Largest value for the fitted function during the season
13. Base level value
14. Peak of season
