Analysis of the relationship between yield in cereals and remotely sensed fAPAR in the framework of monitoring drought impacts in Europe

Carmelo Cammalleri, Niall McCormick, and Andrea Toreti

Data sets

EDO Fraction of Absorbed Photosynthetically Active Radiation (FAPAR) Anomaly (MODIS) (version 1.3.2) EDO - European Drought Observatory

Short summary
We evaluated the ability of vegetation indices derived from satellite data to capture annual yield variations across Europe. The strength of the relationship varies throughout the year, with March–October representing the optimal period in most cases. Spatial differences were also observed, with the best results obtained in the Mediterranean regions.
