March 01, 2021
By: LP DAAC

The Land Processes Distributed Active Archive Center (LP DAAC) is pleased to announce the availability of the Terra, Aqua, and Combined Terra+Aqua Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) Version 6.1 Leaf Area Index (LAI) and Fraction of Photosynthetically Active Radiation (FPAR) product suite. These collections will continue to grow as historical and forward processing is completed. Details on product improvements for Version 6.1 are provided on the Digital Object Identifier (DOI) landing pages. Version 6 LAI/FPAR data products will remain available and will continue with forward processing during this transition.

A citation containing the DOI for each MODIS Version 6.1 dataset is provided below.
