Description

The MYD17A2H V6 Gross Primary Productivity (GPP) product is a cumulative 8-day composite with a 500m resolution. The product is based on the radiation-use efficiency concept and can be potentially used as inputs to data models to calculate terrestrial energy, carbon, water cycle processes, and biogeochemistry of vegetation.
