Welcome to the VIP Lab.

The Vegetation Index and Phenology (VIP) Lab. is part of the Biosystems Engineering department at the University of Arizona. Headed by Dr. Kamel Didan. This research Lab. is supported by various NASA and international collaborative research grants. The Lab. specializes in designing highly specialized data processing science algorithms and in generating consistent, high quality and well characterized Climate Data Record (CDR) and Earth Science Data Record (ESDR) long term single- and multi-satellite data products in support of global change studies. The VIP Lab. works to produce and validate two key land surface measurements:

As well as other value added products related to land surface vegetation that are intended for use by the science community, federal and international agencies, and the public.

In collaboration with researchers at other institutions like Boston University, University of Hawaii, NOAA/ERT Inc., and the USGS-EROS LP-DAAC the VIP Lab. developed and end to end system for the production of global Vegetation Index and phenology products. The Lab. also carries validation and quality assurance analysis of these products.
