Vegetation Phenology and Productivity Parameters Season 1, Yearly

Short description

Vegetation Phenology and Productivity Parameters (VPP) product is part of the Copernicus Land Monitoring Service (CLMS), pan-European High Resolution Vegetation Phenology and Productivity (HR-VPP) product suite. The VPP product is comprised of 13 parameters that describe specific stages of the seasonal vegetation growth cycle. These parameters are extracted from Seasonal Trajectories of the Plant Phenology Index(PPI) derived from Sentinel-2 satellite observations at 10m resolution. Since growing seasons can traverse years, VPP parameters are provided for a maximum of two growing seasons per year. The parameters include (1) start of season (date, PPI value and slope), (2) end of season (date, PPI value and slope), (3)length of season, (4) minimum of season, (4) peak of the season (date and PPI value), (5) amplitude, (6) small integrated value and (7) large integrated value. VPP parameters are generated over the EEA39 region on a yearly frequency from January 1 2017 onwards. Among other applications, the high-resolution phenology data provides a detailed assessment of the impacts of human or climate change on the ecosystem through monitoring of vegetation responses to disturbances, e.g. droughts, storms, insect infestations, and to human influence from global to local levels. More information about VPP product methodology and workflow is outlined in the product user manual
