Global WaterPack - MODIS - Monthly items

  • Name: GWP_P1M
  • Title: Global WaterPack - MODIS - Monthly
  • Description: The Global WaterPack is a dataset containing information about open surface water cover parameters on a global scale. The water detection is derived from daily, operational MODIS datasets for every year since 2003. The negative effects of polar darkness and cloud coverage are compensated by applying interpolation processing steps. Thereby, a unique global dataset can be provided that is characterized by its high temporal resolution of one day and a spatial resolution of 250 meter.
