West and East eMODIS Remote Sensing Phenology -  SOST for 2017

Western and Eastern region eMODIS Remote Sensing Phenology Start of Season for 2017.

(Public domain.)

Historical remote sensing phenology (RSP) image data and graphics for the conterminous U.S. are made freely available from the USGS/EROS Center through this website.

Five data sets are distributed: CONUS 1 km AVHRR RSP data, C5 Eastern CONUS 250 m eMODIS RSP data, C6 Eastern CONUS 250 m eMODIS RSP data, C5 Western CONUS 250 m eMODIS RSP data, and C6 Western CONUS 250 m eMODIS RSP data.

Due to sensor degradation of the MODIS Terra sensor, particularly for the period after 2007, we recommend that users work with the C6 eMODIS RSP datasets which are derived from AQUA MODIS C6 NDVI data.

Users of these phenology data sets should cite this DOI:  https://doi.org//10.5066/F7PC30G1
