Acquiring Remote Sensing Phenology Data from USGS/EROS Center

Historical remote sensing phenology (RSP) image data and graphics for the conterminous U.S. are made freely available from the USGS/EROS Center through this website. Three data sets are distributed: CONUS 1 km AVHRR RSP data, Eastern CONUS 250 m eMODIS RSP data, and Western CONUS 250 m eMODIS RSP data.
All three remote sensing phenology data sets are also distributed from Earth Explorer which supports bulk data downloading. Click on the Data Sets tab and scroll to the bottom of the list. The phenology data are listed under the Vegetation Monitoring heading. For example, if you select Entity ID: PHEMUSW2007V01, you will download all phenology metrics for the MODIS 250 m Western U.S. for the year, 2007. Entity ID: PHEMUSE2007V01 will select the phenology metrics for the Eastern U.S. for 2007.
