Title: FAPAR composite



FAPAR (Fraction of Absorbed Photosynthetically Active Radiation) composite derived from Sentinel-3's OLCI instrument, between 20-23 September 2016. The image has been generated by the Sentinel-3 MPC in the framework of the Sentinel-3 Cal/Val activities. FAPAR is one of the Essential Climate Variables, recognised by GCOS (Global Climate Observing System). The algorithm was developed by Nadine Gobron, from the Joint Research Centre.
