Obtain land surface phenology metrics from an xarray.DataArray containing a timeseries of a vegetation index like NDVI.

da (xarray.DataArray) – DataArray should contain a 2D or 3D time series of a vegetation index like NDVI, EVI
stats (list) –
list of phenological statistics to return. Regardless of the metrics returned, all statistics are calculated due to inter-dependencies between metrics. Options include:
SOS = DOY of start of season
POS = DOY of peak of season
EOS = DOY of end of season
vSOS = Value at start of season
vPOS = Value at peak of season
vEOS = Value at end of season
Trough = Minimum value of season
LOS = Length of season (DOY)
AOS = Amplitude of season (in value units)
ROG = Rate of greening
ROS = Rate of senescence
method_sos (str) – If ‘first’ then vSOS is estimated as the first positive slope on the greening side of the curve. If ‘median’, then vSOS is estimated as the median value of the postive slopes on the greening side of the curve.
method_eos (str) – If ‘last’ then vEOS is estimated as the last negative slope on the senescing side of the curve. If ‘median’, then vEOS is estimated as the ‘median’ value of the negative slopes on the senescing side of the curve.
