Fractional cover - MODIS, CSIRO algorithm
Vegetation fractional cover represents the exposed proportion of green, non-green, and bare cover within each pixel. MODIS-scale ground cover provides monthly information for soil erosion and vegetation dynamics at continental and global scales. The algorithm is validated for Australia. A global product using the same algorithm is also produced.
