Short summary
We compared two new Earth observation based long-term global vegetation index products used in global change research (Global Inventory Modeling and Mapping Studies and Vegetation Index and Phenology Lab- VIP version 3). The two products showed a high level of consistency throughout the primary growing season and were less consistent during green-up and brown-down that impacted trends in phenology. VIP was generally higher and more variable leading to poorer correlations with in situ data
