Christopher L. Kibler, Anne-Marie L. Parkinson, Seth H. Peterson, Dar A. Roberts, Carla M. D'Antonio, Susan K. Meerdink, Stuart H. Sweeney
2019 Remote Sensing  
We combined field survey data with two time series remote sensing products: the relative delta normalized burn ratio (RdNBR) and green vegetation (GV) fractions derived from spectral mixture analysis.  ...  The GV fractions (r(78) = 0.552, p < 0.001) and normalized burn ratio (r(78) = 0.555, p < 0.001) had nearly identical correlations with ground reference data of green vegetation cover.  ...  Remote sensing is another method of monitoring land cover change, which provides broad spatial and temporal coverage.  ...
