Vegetation assessment in East Africa using MGVI and Red Edge Position from ENVISAT MERIS data

Abstract

The actual condition of vegetation cover is represented by its spectral signature. Photosynthetic active vegetation is characterized by a low reflectance in the red and a high reflectance in the near infrared spectra. This specific feature is used to calculate different vegetation indices. One index is the MERIS Global Vegetation Index (MGVI), the other one… (More)
