El Niño/Southern Oscillation (ENSO) is considered one of the most powerful forces driving anomalous global weather patterns. Large-scale seasonal precipitation and temperature changes influenced by ENSO have been examined in many areas of the world. The southeastern United States is one of the regions affected by ENSO events. In this study, remote sensing detection of vegetation response to ENSO phases is demonstrated with one-kilometer biweekly Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI… 
Investigating Response of Global Vegetation to ENSO Events Between 1987 and 1997 Using NDVI Data
El Nino Southern Oscillation (ENSO) influences extensive regions around the globe causing global weather changes and affecting both marine and land ecosystems. ENSO events are also frequently held
Assessing the Impact of ENSO on Agriculture Over Africa Using Earth Observation Data
The El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) is one of the strongest drivers of climate variability that directly influences agricultural production. The aim of this study is to assess the impact of ENSO
Effects of El Niño on spring phenology of the highest mountain in north-east Asia
Normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) data on the highest mountain in north-east Asia were analysed to understand their temporal variability and response to large-scale El Niño–Southern
Spatiotemporal Dynamics of NDVI, Soil Moisture and ENSO in Tropical South America
We evaluated the coupled dynamics of vegetation dynamics (NDVI) and soil moisture (SMOS) at monthly resolution over different regions of tropical South America and the effects of the Eastern Pacific
Spatio‐temporal change analysis to identify anomalous variation in the vegetated land surface: ENSO effects in tropical South America
Seasonal variation of the vegetated land surface across tropical South America was evaluated using Trajectory Analysis (TA) on the Pathfinder AVHRR Land (PAL) NDVI data. These 8 km 10‐day
Understanding and Visualizing and ENSO-Based Fire Climatology in Florida, USA: A Case Method Using Cluster Analysis
Lightning-originated wildfires have a significant impact on the physical and cultural environment of the humid subtropics of the United States, and in particular in Florida. The role of the El
Effect of ENSO events on sediment production in a large coastal basin in northern Peru
Although the importance of ENSO on hydrological anomalies has been recognized, variations in sediment fluxes caused by these extreme events are poorly documented. The effect of ENSO is not limited to

This research explores the relationship between El Nino/Southern Oscillation (ENSO), captured by equatorial Pacific Ocean Sea Surface Temperature (SST), and interannual variation in vegetation vigour
Satellite-Observed Sensitivity of World Land Ecosystems to El Niño/La Niña
Interannual variability of NDVI over Africa and its relation to El Niño/Southern Oscillation
Abstract The array of Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) products now being derived from satellite imagery open up new opportunities for the study of short and long-term variability in
North American Precipitation and Temperature Patterns Associated with the El Niño/Southern Oscillation (ENSO)
Abstract This paper describes an investigation of the “typical” North American precipitation and temperature patterns associated with the El Nino/Southern Oscillation (ENSO). Monthly surface

We have analysed monthly composites of normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) calculated from NOAA's Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) for the Amazonian region of northern
ENSO Influences on Agriculture in the Southeastern United States
The influence of El Nino-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) on crop production in the southeastern United States was studied to identify crops that are vulnerable to ENSO-related weather variability and
The 1997–98 El Nino event and related wintertime lightning variations in the southeastern United States
The El Nino Southern Oscillation (ENSO) is a climate anomaly responsible for worldwide weather impacts ranging from droughts to floods. In the United States, warm episode years are known to produce
ENSO drought onset prediction in northeast Brazil using NDVI
El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) indices and satellite-recorded Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) were used to construct a drought onset prediction model for northeast Brazil (NEB)
