Satellite-based estimates of vegetation density over Australia during 1988-2008

Liu, Yi Y.; de Jeu, Richard A.M.; McCabe, Matthew F.; Evans, Jason; Van Dijk, Albert


Vegetation density plays an important role in the water and energy balance. Satellite based passive microwave instruments have shown an ability to monitor the total above-ground vegetation biomass at global scales. A recently developed approach to retrieving vegetation optical depth (VOD, an index of vegetation density) from microwave emissions can be used for all bands in the microwave domain, allowing data collected by different satellites (e.g. Special Sensor Microwave/Imager (SSM/I from...[Show more]
