A VARI-based relative greenness from MODIS data for computing the Fire Potential Index

P. Schneider, D.A. Roberts, P.C. Kyriakidis
2008 Remote Sensing of Environment  
To compare MODIS-based NDVI-FPI and VARI-FPI, RG was calculated from a 6-year time series of MODIS composites and validated against in-situ observations of LFM as a surrogate for vegetation greenness.  ...  RG from both indices was then compared in terms of its performance for computing the FPI using historical wildfire data.  ...  Furthermore, the authors also acknowledge the contribution of four anonymous reviewers, whose comments substantially improved the quality of the manuscript.  ...
