Vegetation Dynamics and Crop Stress PDF Summary

Vegetation and Crop Stress: An Earth-Observation Perspective focuses on vegetation dynamics and crop stress at the regional as well as country level by using earth observation (EO) data sets. The book is unique in its provision for a better understanding of natural vegetation and crop failure through geo-spatial technologies. Climate and vegetation dynamics are closely related; local climate affects land surface processes over a variety of scales while vegetation has an impact on the environment via photosynthesis and evapo-transpiration, changes in albedo, etc. This book focuses on biophysical control of vegetation, deforestation, desertification, drought, crop-water efficiency, etc. In addition, the book covers the application of satellite-derived measures from optical, thermal, and microwave domains for monitoring and modeling crop condition, agricultural drought, and crop health in contrasting monsoon/weather episodes. Additionally, the book covers the impact of extreme weather events on crop yield, long-term vegetation dynamics in response to climate change, conversion of croplands, advanced models for agricultural yield, terrestrial primary productivity, impact of soil-water stress on crop, natural and anthropogenic causes of vegetation and crop variability, etc. Provides a quantitative analysis of vegetation and crop stress based on EO datasets Offers descriptions of the spatially explicit vegetation and crop model development, implementation, and validation Includes impact of soil-water stress on crop performance and vegetation response to climate change using earth observation techniques
