Leaf Area Index (LAI) - Switzerland [2000-2009, Landsat]

This dataset is an time-serie of Landsat Analysis Ready Data (ARD)- derived Leaf Area Index (LAI) computed from Landsat 5-7-8 data. LAI is designed to analyze the foliage surface of our planet and it estimates the quantity of leaves in a specific region using the forumla LAI= 3.618*EVI - 0.118. For more details see Boegh et al. (2002) DOI: 10.1016/S0034-4257(01)00342-X LAI is a unitless measure that is calculated as the ratio of the one-sided (illuminated) foliage area to the soil surface it can cover. This vegetation index is important to monitor crop and forest health, the environment, and climatic conditions. Values are provided as integer and multiplied by 1000 Metrics: annual (_annual) and seasonal (_spring; _summer; _autumn; _winter) mean (_nanmean), standard dev (_nanstd), min (_nanmin), max (_nanmax), median (_nanmedian), and amplitude (_range) Data format: GeoTiff This dataset has been genereated with the Swiss Data Cube (http://www.swissdatacube.ch) in the frame of the ValPar.CH project (https://www.valpar.ch)
