    Drought monitoring using satellite remote sensing can be used by agricultural producers, decision-makers relying on early warning information, policymakers, and other stakeholders to improve management decisions. This Special Issue will focus on “Drought Monitoring using Satellite Remote Sensing”. As well known, cloud was usually a big obstacle in application of remote sensing data for drought monitoring because the ground information of cloud pixels was difficult to reveal. It was necessary to detect and remove the influence of cloud in remote sensing of by:

International Journal of Environmental Science and Development, Vol. 6, No. 5, May DOI: /IJESDV range is between about (for a not very green area) to (for a very green area). NDVI provides an estimate ofFile Size: 1MB. Remote-sensing-based indices defined as an index which using remote sensing data for mapping the drought condition in particular area or region. This research aims to compare remote-sensing-based drought indices, namely TCI, VCI and VHI to obtain a better understanding about the differentiation between each index, and their application for Cited by: 3.

    Here, we propose a new drought index—the integrated agricultural drought index (IDI), which describes the relationship between multiple variables and agricultural drought conditions. The derivation of IDI is based on the remote sensing data and the back-propagation (BP) neural network, capable of identifying the non-stationary relationship of Author: Xianfeng Liu, Xianfeng Liu, Xiufang Zhu, Qiang Zhang, Tiantian Yang, Yaozhong Pan, Peng Sun.
