Home >> PHENOREGIONS FOR MONITORING VEGETATION RESPONSES TO CLIMATE CHANGE  
  Help   Contact Us
Using global 8- km 1982 to 1999 Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) data and an eight-element monthly global 1961 to 1990 monthly climatology data, White et al. (2005) identified pixels consistently dominated by annual cycles and then created 500 phenologically and climatically self-similar clusters, which they termed phenoregions. They ranked and screened each phenoregion as a function of landcover homogeneity and consistency, evidence of human impacts, and political diversity. The remaining 140 phenoregions represent areas with a minimized probability of human influence and non-climatic forcings and form elemental units for long-term phenological monitoring.
