Vegetation in deserts. I - A regional measure of abundance from multispectral images. II - Environmental influences on regional abundance
Abstract A method was tested in the semiarid Owens Valley, California for measuring sparse vegetation cover using Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) multispectral images. Although green vegetation has aExpand
