Brief description

The Fractional Cover (FC) algorithm was developed by the Joint Remote Sensing Research Program and is described in Scarth et al. (2010).

The FC-PERCENTILEproduct provides statistical (10th, 50th and 90th percentile) summaries of fractional cover per epoch (whole-of-archive-summary, annual, seasonal). The fractional cover statistics are calculated from the fractional cover product (FC_25_2.0.0).

The FC-PERCENTILE product is available in the following forms:

FC-PERCENTILE-SUMMARY, this contains a (10th, 50th and 90th percentile) of BS, PV and NPV of all observations contained within the DEA (from 1987 to the most up to date imagery available)

FC-PERCENTILE-ANNUAL-SUMMARY, this contains a (10th, 50th and 90th percentile) of BS, PV and NPV ofobservations acquired in each full calendar year (1st of January - 31st December) from 1987 to the most recent full calendar year

FC-PERCENTILE-SEASONAL-SUMMARY, this contains a (10th, 50th and 90th percentile) of BS, PV and NPV of observations acquired within each calendar season (DJF, MAM, JJA, SON). This product is available for the most recent 8 seasons
