Thenkabail Received: 18 May 2016 / Revised: 15 August 2016 / Accepted: 17 August 2016 / Published: 20 August 2016 No Long-term global land surface fractional vegetation cover (FVC) products are essential for various applications. Currently, several global FVC products have been generated from medium spatial resolution remote sensing data. However, validation results indicate that there are inconsistencies and spatial and temporal discontinuities in the current FVC…
