Vegetation greenness trend ( 2000 to 2009 ) and the climate controls in the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau

  title={Vegetation greenness trend ( 2000 to 2009 ) and the climate controls in the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau},
  author={Huadong Guo and Lei Ji and Liping Lei and Cuizhen Wang and Dongmei Yan},
The Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau has been experiencing a distinct warming trend, and climate warming has a direct and quick impact on the alpine grassland ecosystem. We detected the greenness trend of the grasslands in the plateau using Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer data from 2000 to 2009. Weather station data were used to explore the climatic drivers for vegetation greenness variations. The results demonstrated that the region-wide averaged normalized difference vegetation index… CONTINUE READING
