The distribution and phenologies of vegetation are largely associated with climate, terrain characteristics and human activities. Satellite data provide an opportunity to map vegetation and monitor its dynamics continuously. This paper describes the application of Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) time series data for forest(More)
Evapotranspiration (ET) is an important variable for water and energy balances on the earth's surface. Surface Energy Balance Algorithm for Land (SEBAL) is an image-processing model that calculates ET over vast areas. In this study, time series of MODIS data in 2009 and meteorological data are used to estimate ET over the Yellow River Delta (YRD) by SEBAL,(More)
Annual normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) and chlorophyll-a (Chl-a) concentration are the most important large-scale indicators of terrestrial and oceanic ecosystem net primary productivity. In this paper, the Sea-viewing Wide Field-of-view Sensor level 3 standard mapped image annual products from 1998 to 2009 are used to study the(More)
Coastal wetland shoreline change represents one of the most important land-ocean interaction processes in complex and dynamic coastal environment. This paper presents the detecting of shoreline changes in four typical coastal wetlands of ecological importance along Bohai rim based on multi-temporal shorelines extracted from obtained Normalized Difference(More)
Quantification of net ecosystem carbon exchange (NEE) between the atmosphere and vegetation is of great importance for regional and global studies of carbon balance. The eddy covariance technique can quantify carbon budgets and the effects of environmental controls for many forest types across the continent but it only provides integrated CO2 flux(More)
