Title: SPRUCE Vegetation Phenology in Experimental Plots from Phenocam Imagery, 2015-2017

Abstract

Users please note that this dataset has been superseded by a later version. See Schädel et al., 2019. (https://doi.org/10.25581/spruce.071/1556082). This data set consists of PhenoCam data from the SPRUCE experiment from the beginning of whole ecosystem warming in August 2015 through the end of 2017. Digital cameras, or phenocams, installed in each SPRUCE enclosure track seasonal variation in vegetation “greenness”, a proxy for vegetation phenology and associated physiological activity. Regions of interest (ROIs) were defined for vegetation types (1) Picea trees (EN, evergreen needleleaf); (2) Larix trees (DN, deciduous needleleaf); and (3) the mixed shrub layer (SH, shrubs). This data set consists of two sets of data files: (1) standard “3-day summary product files” for each camera and each ROI (i.e. vegetation type), characterizing vegetation color at a 3-day time step and (2) a “transition date file” containing the estimated “greenness rising” (spring) and “greenness falling” (autumn) transition dates.
