The objective of BigFoot was to provide ground validation of MODLand (MODIS Land Discipline Group) land cover, leaf area index (LAI), fAPAR, and net primary production (NPP) products. The name BigFoot was selected to describe the multiple scales, or footprints, of ground validation that the project will undertake. The BigFoot study plan covered measurement, mapping, and modeling activities at four sites, each equipped with a meteorological flux tower that makes continuous measurements of energy, water, and carbon fluxes for a roughly 1-km2 footprint.
