Research brief: Calibration in the GIMMSv3.0g dataset may have affected dryland NDVI values globallyFebruary 12, 2019 9:21 am Comments Off on Research brief: Calibration in the GIMMSv3.0g dataset may have affected dryland NDVI values globally
Calibration errors in the widely used Global Inventory Monitoring and Modeling System Version 3 NDVI (GIMMSv3.0g) dataset caused significant errors in the trends over some of Australia’s dryland regions. Though identified over Australia, the problematic calibration in the GIMMSv3.0g dataset may have effected dryland NDVI values globally. These errors have been addressed in the updated GIMMSv3.1g which is strongly recommended for use in future studies.
