Decommissioning of MODIS Version 5.5 Net Primary Production Data Product on April 6, 2020

March 25, 2020

The Land Processes Distributed Active Archive Center (LP DAAC) will be decommissioning the Terra MODIS Version 5.5 Net Primary Production Yearly L4 Global 1 km SIN Grid (MOD17A3) data product on April 6, 2020. This annual product will no longer be distributed by the LP DAAC or available for download from NASA’s Earthdata Search, Data Pool, or AppEEARS.

The improved MODIS Version 6 Gap-Filled dataset at 500 m spatial resolution has been available since November 2019, allowing the MODIS community to transition from the Version 5.5 product over that time.

A citation containing the Digital Object Identifier (DOI) for the Version 6 dataset is provided below.
