Climate-related trends in Australian vegetation cover as inferred from satellite observations, 1981-2006
Using Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer data spanning 1981-2006 and calibrated for long-term analyses of vegetation dynamics, we examine whether vegetation cover has increased across Australia and whether there has been a differential response of vegetation functional types in response to changes in climatic growing conditions. Trends in vegetation cover are interpreted within Budyko's energy - water limitation framework. Results from an Australia-wide analysis indicate that vegetation...[Show more]
