The MODIS remote sensing vegetation phenology at returning green stage in spring(2001-2014)

This dataset is based on the sixth edition of the MODIS normalized difference vegetation index product (2001-2014) jointly released by NASA EOSDIS LP DAAC and the US Geological Survey USGS EROS. The NDVI has a time resolution of 16 days and a spatial resolution of 0.05 degree. First,the NDVI data products were re-sampled from the spatial resolution of 0.05 degree to 0.5 degree, then the time series of every year was smoothed by the double-logistic method, and the smoothed curvature was calculated. The maximum curvature of spring was selected as the returning green stage of the vegetation in Spring. This data can be used to analyze the temporal and spatial characteristics of the Holarctic vegetation phenology in Spring.
