Global mean dry matter productivity

The global mean dry matter productivity dataset is a monthly and annual DMP climatology based on all SPOT-VGT DMP data collected during the period 1998-2008. SPOT-VGT DMP is calculated every 10 days at 1km resolution on the basis of change in NDVI and was averaged over the period 1998-2008, globally for this product. The resulting dataset is used in Co$ting Nature to characterise carbon sequestration. The raw data are not yet available at the GEODATA portal
