Paper Abstract

This paper presents a new drought assessment method by modifying the NDVI-Ts space, which named NDVI-Ts general space. Based on this method, the general dry side and wet side equation were established for the period of 2000 and 2010 in the Mongolian Plateau. The results showed that: 1) the NDVI-Ts general space was more stable for monitoring drought than that for the single time Remote Sensing data; 2) Drought mainly distributed in the Mongolian Plateau, In Mongolian Plateau, there was about 75% area of drought; 3) Drought changed in the period of 2000 and 2010. In the year of 2003, the area of severe drought is the smallest. In 2001, the drought is the most serious. The results showed that, the distribution of drought was different in different year. There may be close correlation between the occurrence of drought and precipitation.
