The Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) or 'greenness index', based on the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) aboard the NOAA-7 satellite, has been widely interpreted as a measure of regional to global vegetation patterns. This study provides the first rigorous, quantitative evaluation of global relationships between the NDVI and geographically representative vegetation data-bases, including field metabolic measurements and carbon-balance results from global simulationdoi:10.1007/bf00048034 fatcat:d4utpctpozaw7lzn7vads2opea
