Abstract

For ecological studies and environmental change research, Pettorelli et al. (2005) distinguish two main groups of satellite products:

Keywords

Land Degradation Satellite Product NDVI Data Environmental Change Research Primary Production Data 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
