Post-Fire Vegetation Succession and Surface Energy Fluxes Derived from Remote Sensing

Xuedong Li, Hongyan Zhang, Guangbin Yang, Yanling Ding, Jianjun Zhao
2018 Remote Sensing  
Remote sensing offers considerable potential for the inversion of the regeneration trajectory of post-fire forests via time-series data or remote sensing indices, such as the normalized difference vegetation  ...  Therefore, the selection of remote sensing indices to study forest-vegetation succession processes must be relevant and have a clear ecological significance.  ...  Author Contributions: All authors contributed to the conception and design of this research and the discussion of results.  ...
