The northern latitudes have warmed by about 0.8 C since the early 1970s, but not all areas have warmed equally. Eurasia shows an overall warming trend, while North America exhibits warming at a lower rate and even a slight cooling trend during the last 50 years in the Eastern USA. We analyzed a recently developed satellite normalized di erence vegetation index (NDVI) data set (July 1981 to December 1999) to assess vegetation response to these temperature changes. An index of persistence of the… CONTINUE READING
