  1. 1. Analysing the vegetation condition during the 2017 and 2018 growing seasons using indices derived from Sentinel-2 data : a case study over southern Sweden

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Camilla Persson; [2019]
    Keywords : Physical Geography and Ecosystem analysis; remote sensing; vegetation indices; drought; Geomatics; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The summer of 2017 was climatically close to normal in southern Sweden, whereas the following summer was unusually warm and dry. These two years therefore make an interesting case study for investigating the impact of severe drought on vegetation, particularly when considering that climate change is predicted to lead to an increased frequency of drought events in the study area.
