摘要
Advancedvery high resolution radiometer (AVHRR) data provide the longest available time series of global satellite observations and have been extensively used. The Land Long-Term Data Record (LTDR) project has generated daily surface reflectance and normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) products from AVHRR. However, residual cloud and aerosol contamination in the LTDR AVHRR surface reflectance and NDVI products significantly limits their applications and results in temporal and spatial inconsistencies in subsequent downstream products. Based on the LTDR AVHRR surface reflectance, a temporally continuous vegetation indices-based land-surface reflectance reconstruction (VIRR) method was refined in this study to generate Global LAnd Surface Satellite (GLASS) AVHRR NDVI and surface reflectance products from 1982 to 2015. The daily LTDR AVHRR surface reflectance data were first aggregated into eight-day intervals. The aggregated surface reflectance data were used to calculate NDVI, and a robust smoothing algorithm was used to reconstruct continuous and smooth NDVI upper envelopes, which were used to identify cloud-contaminated surface reflectance values. Then the surface reflectance time series was reconstructed from cloud-free surface reflectance values by incorporating the upper envelopes of the NDVI time series as constraints. The results show that the refined VIRR method successfully removes NDVI and surface reflectance values contaminated by clouds and can reconstruct temporally continuous NDVI and land-surface reflectance time series. Comparison of the GLASS AVHRR NDVI product with the third-generation Global Inventory Monitoring and Modeling System (GIMMS3g) and the moderate resolution imaging spectroradiometer (MODIS) NDVI products indicates that these NDVI products exhibit similar spatial patterns, but the GIMMS3g NDVI values were clearly higher than the GLASS AVHRR and MODIS NDVI values in tropical forest regions and the 50 degrees N-60 degrees N latitude band, particularly in July. Comparisons with the MODIS NDVI values over the BELMANIP (Benchmark Land Multisite Analysis and Intercomparisonof Products) sites demonstrate that the GLASS AVHRR NDVI product provides better performance (RMSE = 0.1007 and Bias = 0.0518) than the GIMMS3g NDVI product (RMSE = 0.1288 and Bias = 0.0852). The temporal profiles of all these NDVI products exhibited consistent seasonal variations, but the temporal smoothness of the GLASS AVHRR NDVI product was superior to that of the GIMMS3g and MODIS NDVI products. The GLASS AVHRR and GIMMS3g NDVI products show consistent trends in most situations, but the trends of the GLASS AVHRR NDVI product were slightly more pronounced than those of the GIMMS3g NDVI product for each biome type. Comparison of the GLASS AVHRR surface reflectance product with MODIS surface reflectance product indicates the GLASS AVHRR and MODIS surface reflectance showed similar seasonal and interannual variations and the GLASS AVHRR surface reflectance was in good agreement with the MODIS surface reflectance, especially in the red band.
