The U.S. Geological Survey's EROS Data Center has created a prototype 1‐km resolution data base of vegetation seasonal characteristics. The characteristics are derived from time‐series NDVI data collected by the AVHRR satellite sensor. Information covering the 5 years 1989–1993 is included in the data base. Although quantitative validation of the seasonal characteristics cannot be made until several evaluation efforts are completed, general observations are possible by viewing images of the seasonal parameters. Figures 2 through 8 show several examples of the seasonal characteristics data base.
