Abstract

The normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) and the enhanced vegetation index (EVI) for global and regional vegetation monitoring were analyzed using Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometers (MODIS). The histograms for the two indices were analyzed from hyperarid to moist tropical vegetation biomes and compared with the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) NDVI product. The MODIS-NDVI exhibited a much wider range in values and sensitivity to vegetation conditions, possibly due to the narrower bandpasses and their increased sensitivity to chlorophyll absorption and lower sensitivity to water vapor in the atmosphere.
