    Description: The use of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's advanced very high resolution radiometer satellite data for classifying land cover and monitoring of vegetation dynamics over an extremely large area is demonstrated for the continent of Africa. Data from 17 imaging periods of 21 consecutive days each were composited by a technique sensitive to the in situ green-leaf biomass to provide cloud-free imagery for the whole continent. Virtually cloud-free images were obtainable even for equatorial areas. Seasonal variation in the density and extent of green leaf vegetation corresponded to the patterns of rainfall associated with the inter-tropical convergence zone. Regional variations, such as the 1982 drought in east Africa, were also observed. Integration of the weekly satellite data with respect to time produced a remotely sensed assessment of biological activity based upon density and duration of green-leaf biomass. Two of the 21-day composited data sets were used to produce a general land cover classification. The resultant land cover distributions correspond well to those of existing maps.

    Description: Two sets of multitemporal data derived from NOAA world data product are analyzed by means of principal components analysis in order to examine their underlying multitemporal dimensionality. Specifically, images of the normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) were analyzed for eight 3-week periods for Africa and ten 3-week periods for North America sampled from throughout the year extending from April 1982 to March 1983. The two multitemporal sets of images displayed remarkable similarities in terms of their first two components, the first corresponding very closely to the annualized integrated NDVI and the second to the seasonality of the NDVI. In particular, for the African data set the feature space defined by the first two components allows separation of the main cover types.

    Description: Data from the advanced very high resolution radiometer sensor on the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's operational series of meteorological satellites were used to classify land cover and monitor vegetation dynamics for Africa over a 19-month period. There was a correspondence between seasonal variations in the density and extent of green leaf vegetation and the patterns of rainfall associated with the movement of the Intertropical Convergence Zone. Regional variations, such as the 1983 drought in the Sahel of western Africa, were observed. Integration of the weekly satellite data with respect to time for a 12-month period produced a remotely sensed estimate of primary production based upon the density and duration of green leaf biomass. Eight of the 21-day composited data sets covering an 11-month period were used to produce a general land-cover classification that corresponded well with those of existing maps.

    Description: Imagery from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration satellite's Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer sensor has been used to identify an area about 100 x 400 km in Rondonia (Brazil) where massive forest clearing or deforestation is occurring. A field study verified the area of the clearing, which is associated with a large colonization program.

    Description: Images using reflected visible and NIR data and images using passive microwave data were compared in terms of their usefulness for characterizing land-cover types in South America and Africa. The former images are of the normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI), and the latter images are of the microwave polarization difference temperature (MPDT). The combined use of MPDT and NDVI data sets show clear synergistic benefits in using the two data sets. However, the evidence suggests that for most cover types, increasing the temporal frequency of the NDVI images is more advantageous than incorporating MPDT data sets.
