Abstract

Drought has an important impact to agriculture, and its monitoring is very necessary for many regions subjected to drought in Shandong province. Gaomi city of Shandong was chosen as a study area to probe remote sensing monitoring method of drought. Landsat8 satellite data and soil volumetric moisture content data from filed investigation were used. Temperature- vegetation method was adopted to monitor drought in the study area. The results showed that land surface temperature was negatively related to NDVI. Temperature vegetation dryness index (TVDI) had a significant correlation with soil water content. TVDI can reflect the drought in the study. It suggests that TVDI can be used as a effective index to monitor drought in the study area.
