Attribution of satellite-observed vegetation trends in a hyper-arid region of the Heihe River basin, Western China

Wang, Yanfang; Roderick, Michael; shen, Yanjun; Sun, Fubao

Description

Terrestrial vegetation dynamics are closely influenced by both climate and by both climate and by land use and/or land cover change (LULCC) caused by human activities. Both can change over time in a monotonic way and it can be difficult to separate the effects of climate change from LULCC on vegetation. Here we attempt to attribute trends in the fractional green vegetation cover to climate variability and to human activity in Ejina Region, a hyper-arid landlocked region in northwest China.
