NDVI trend from Landsat time series, 1999-2014, Alaskan Arctic Coastal Plain (US)

Lara, Mark J.; Nitze, Ingmar; Grosse, Guido; McGuire, A. David

Normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) trend map was computed for the Alaskan Arctic Coastal Plain between 1999 and 2014. The decadal trend of each pixel was computed using 40-110 individual Landsat (TM, ETM+, OLI) satellite images acquired during July or August.
