Paper Abstract

Drought is one kind of nature disasters in the world. It has characteristics of temporal-spatial inhomogeneity, wide affected areas and periodic happening. The economic loss and affected population caused by different droughts are the largest in all natural disasters. Remote sensing has the advantages of large coverage, frequent observation, repeatable observation, reliable information source and low cost. These advantages make remote sensing a vital contributor for drought disaster risk assessment and monitoring. In this paper, three drought monitoring models, such as Vegetation Condition Index (VCI), Temperature Vegetation Dryness Index (TVDI), and Water Supplying Vegetation Index (WSVI) had been selected to monitor the drought occurred from January 2012 to June 2012 in Hubei province, China. Two kinds of remote sensing data, including HJ-1A/B CCD/IRS and ZY-3, had been employed to assess the integrated risk of Hubei drought based on three drought monitoring models. The results shown that the risk of northwest regions and middle regions in Hubei province were higher than that in the other regions. The results also indicated that the extreme risk regions were located in Shiyan, Xiangyang, Suizhou and Jingmen.
