  1. Global Vegetation Index (GVI) time series of multispectral AVHRR weekly composite data with a 0.15’ resolution have been collected from NOAA-9 and -11 since 1985. A prototype global land monitoring system was developed based on monthly maps of…
  2. Recent climatic changes have enhanced plant growth in northern mid-latitudes and high latitudes. However, a comprehensive analysis of the impact of global climatic changes on vegetation productivity has not before been expressed in the context of…
  3. The land surface temperature (LST) is an important but highly variable climatological parameter. Its spatial distribution and the characteristic of its diurnal change over wide areas can only be determined with remote sensing methods. Existing and…
  4. Climate variability has a large impact on the vegetation dynamics. To quantify this impact a study is carried out with Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) satellite images and meteorological data over part of Sahelian Africa and Europe…
  5. The interannual and intraseasonal variability of West African vegetation over the period 1982–2002 is studied using the normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) from the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR). The novel independent…
  6. The European CARBOEUROPE/FLUXNET monitoring sites, spatial remote sensing observations via the EOS-MODIS sensor and ecosystem modelling provide independent and complementary views on the effect of the 2003 heatwave on the European biosphere’s…
