February 09, 2018
By: LP DAAC

The current Aqua and Terra MODIS Net Evapotranspiration and Net Primary Production Yearly L4 Global 500 m SIN Grid Version 6 products are considered unusable for science and validation purposes and are no longer available for distribution.Due to biases related to persistent cloud cover an interpolated input Leaf Area Index (LAI)/Fraction of Photosynthetically Active Radiation (FPAR) dataset will be needed to correct the yearly products.

The MODIS products include:

  • MODIS/Aqua Net Evapotranspiration Yearly L4 Global 500 m SIN Grid V006 - MYD16A3
  • MODIS/Terra Net Evapotranspiration Yearly L4 Global 500 m SIN Grid V006 - MOD16A3
  • MODIS/AQUA Net Primary Production Yearly L4 Global 500m SIN Grid V006 - MYD17A3H
  • MODIS/Terra Net Primary Production Yearly L4 Global 500 m SIN Grid V006 - MOD17A3H

Upon resolution of the input LAI/FPAR product, the MODIS Yearly Net Evapotranspiration and Net Primary Production data will be reprocessed. Users are encouraged to sign up for the LP DAAC listserv for future notifications about data availability.
