Description

The MOD15A2H V6 MODIS combined Leaf Area Index (LAI) and Fraction of Photosynthetically Active Radiation (FPAR) product is an 8-day composite dataset at 500m resolution. The algorithm chooses the "best" pixel available from all the acquisitions of the Terra sensor from within the 8-day period.
