Evaluating the vegetation growing season changes in the arid region of northwestern China

Wang, Yanfang; shen, Yanjun; Sun, Fubao; Chen, Yaning

Description

Temperature has long been accepted as the major controlling factor in determining vegetation phenology in the middle and higher latitudes. The influence of water availability is often overlooked even in arid and semi-arid environments. We compared vegetation phenology metrics derived from both in situ temperature and satellite-based normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) observations from 1982 to 2006 by an example of the arid region of northwestern China. From the satellite-based...[Show more]
