Minimize V10 Product

The SYN V10 product provides, for each spectral band (B0, B2, B3, MIR) a decade synthesis of surface reflectance, defined at top of canopy, i.e. after an atmospheric correction. This synthesis is formed using the maximum value composite over the 10 day period.

 

Note: the "max NDVI" composite method could be replaced by a different one, following the recommendations raised by a coming study.
