Satellite data collected from the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) sensor provide synoptic daily measurements of surface reflectance at a 1-km resolution. Climate stations provide an average resolution of 30-km. Previous studies have established significant relationships between AVHRR-derived vegetation indices and climate variables over non-irrigated crops and grasslands. This project will expand upon that research by investigating methods to integrate the information from climate-based drought indicators with satellite measures of vegetation performance. Although, these two information sources reflect different resolutions they should prove complementary. Climate-based drought indicators show where precipitation amounts are lower than normal, while the satellite-derived data show where vegetation growth is lower than normal. The ultimate goal is to deliver near real-time geo-referenced information (in the form of maps and data) about drought-impacted areas in the US, using the Internet as a primary delivery mechanism.
