The relationship between the normalised difference vegetation index (NDVI) and leaf area index (LAI) was modelled for mangroves growing on the Caicos Bank, Turks and Caicos Islands. NDVI values were used to predict LAI with this model and a thematic map of LAI produced from satellite data for the whole Bank. Mangrove LAI ranged between 0.8 and 7.0, with a mean of 3.96. LAI data, estimated from in situ measurements of canopy transmittance for a set of sites independent of those used to derive… CONTINUE READING
