C6 Land Reprocessing of Teir1 block of products started on Feb 6, 2015, generating following suite of land products - Surface Reflectance, Sea-Ice, Land Surface Temperature, BRDF/Albedo, Vegetation Indices, Lai/Fpar, and GPP/NPP.
Reprocessing is progressing at 30x rate for all of the products except BRDF-Albedo and LST. At the current rate reprocessing of Teir1 products is expected to complete in Spring of 2016. C5 forward processing is expected to continue for a year after the C6 reprocessing has caught up with the C5 forward processing, after which C5 processing will cease operation with approval from science teams.
Sea-ice products are available to public from NSIDC and public release of other land data products will be released from LP-DAAC as per the following plan.
