Paper Abstract

A method is presented for extracting wetland areas in northern high-latitude zones using Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) and land surface temperature (Ts) calculated from midday NOAA/AVHRR data. Wetland areas have been distinguished from other land-cover types using signatures on a scattergram of NDVI vs. Ts. The method was applied for extracting wetland areas in the basin of the Ob River in the west Siberian lowland. The result have been verified with ground-truth data and land-cover classification results obtained from high-resolution satellite images.
