Paper Abstract

With nearly 30 years of the accumulated AVHRR data which were collected from NOAA operational polar-orbiting environmental satellites, the area of their applications expanded in the direction of agricultural production modeling, understanding of climate and global change, resource management, and early and more efficient monitoring of the environmental impacts (especially droughts) on economy and society. This becomes possible due to development of Vegetation Health indices (VHI). This paper discusses utility of AVHRR-based VHI for modeling crop and pasture yield with specific emphasis on early drought warning and estimation of losses in agricultural production.
