AVHRR Orbital Drift Data

A USGS EROS-led study concluded that NOAA satellite orbital drift increased the solar zenith angle (SZA), and in turn, influenced the phenological metrics. Eliminating the years with high SZA greatly reduced the influence of orbital drift on the Remote Sensing Phenology time-series. Read the full publication
