Abstract:We developed a simple method to locate changes in vegetation greenness, which can be used to identify areas under stress. The method only requires inexpensive NDVI data, which can be derived from many sources, and basic statistical and mapping software. AVHRR data are useful for evaluating large areas , but finer scale studies can be performed using higher resolution imagery. The use of remotely sensed data are far more cost effective than field studies and can be performed much more quickly.
