Global ALOS CHILI (Continuous Heat-Insolation Load Index) (CSP/ERGo/1_0/Global/ALOS_CHILI)

Version 1.0

CHILI is a surrogate for effects of insolation and topographic shading on
evapotranspiration represented by calculating insolation at early afternoon,
sun altitude equivalent to equinox. It is based on the 30m “AVE” band of
JAXA’s ALOS DEM (available in EE as JAXA/ALOS/AW3D30_V1_1).

constantALOS-derived CHILI index ranging from 0 (very cool) to 255 (very warm)
