Description:
This ebook provides current scientific information and data on how scientists study and monitor vegetation on Earth's land surfaces. The text is designed to support a series of "hands-on" exercises illustrating how satellite data can be used to monitor vegetation dynamics around the globe. After reading the chapters and completing the exercises, it is anticipated that students will be able to carry out further studies using image data available from NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center Distributed Active Archive Center (GSFC DAAC).
