  2. Global 500-m Foliage Clumping Index Data Derived from MODIS BRDF, 2006

This dataset provides global clumping index (CI) data for 2006 derived from the MODIS Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function (BRDF) data product. Clumping index is a key structural parameter of plant canopies which represents the degree of foliage grouping within distinct canopy structures relative to a random distribution. The data are provided at substantially higher resolution (500-m) than existing clumping index data products.
