Description

This dataset provides Level 2 (L2) Solar-Induced Fluorescence (SIF) of chlorophyll estimates derived from the Global Ozone Monitoring Experiment 2 (GOME-2) instrument on the European Meteorological Satellite (EUMETSAT's) MetOp-A with ~0.5 nm spectral resolution and wavelengths between 734 and 758 nm. GOME-2 covers global land between approximately 70 and -57 degrees latitude on an orbital basis at a resolution of approximately 40 km x 80 km or in the latter part of the record 40 km x 40 km. Data are provided for the period from 2007-02-01 to 2018-01-31. Each file contains daily raw and bias-adjusted solar-induced fluorescence, quality control information, and ancillary data. SIF measurements can provide information on vegetation's functional status, including light-use efficiency and global primary productivity, which can be used for global carbon cycle modeling and agricultural applications. The GOME-2 SIF product is inherently noisy owing to low signal levels and has undergone only a limited amount of validation.
