Vegetation growth is one of the important indicators of drought events. Greenness-related vegetation indices (VIs) such as Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) and Enhanced Vegetation Index (EVI) are often used for the assessment of agricultural drought. There is a need to evaluate the sensitivity of water-related vegetation indices such as Land Surface Water Index (LSWI) to assess drought and associated impacts. Moderate-Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) derived time series… CONTINUE READING
