Vegetation related images for Central Europe derived from Remote Sensing data

__________________________________________________________________________________________

Description:

Anomaly and mean fields are presented during the period of 2000-2016 for:
- the entire years in case of the meteorological parameters (derived from the FORESEE database, with 1/12° x 1/12° spatial resolution),
- the growing season (April-September) in case of the MODIS official vegetation related products (see Kern et al., 2017) with 500m x 500m spatial resolution.

* In case of meteorology the anomaly fields between 2000-2014 are calculated from the FORESEE v2.1 database (until only 2014), while for years 2015 and 2016 they are calculated from the FORESEE v2.3 database (until 2016).
The reason for this diverse usage is that, however the v2.3 dataset extends until 2016, but it is based on the newer EOB-s database, which suffers from missing data in the northern area, affecting the calculated mean and anomaly fields and yielding a strange appearance.
** In case of MOD17A3H yearly NPP data there is still no available products by NASA for years 2015-2016, and the quality of years 2000-2003 are not acceptable.
