Vegetation Dynamics

Sentinel-2 based Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) time series analysis for the year 2018 for different land cover types. In general, vegetation cover and vegetation state play an important role for locust development. This analysis presents a first insight about NDVI variability in both regions of interest.
