source_file: This product is generated from monthly 1/12 degree AVHRR BU leaf area index observations
title: derived AVHRR BU leaf area index in 0.5x0.5
Approach: I read this variable from original abl files using matlab and simply averaged 15-day (half monthly) data to get monthly data. I also interpolated data from 1/12 (0.0833) degree into 0.5 degree and saved the data in NetCDF format.
Temporal resolution: monthly
General information: This product was derived from half monthly AVHRR BU leaf area index from Boston University.
Spatial resolution: 0.5x0.5 degree
