Remote sensing products of vegetation parameters in key areas of Qilian Mountains (2019)

Remote sensing products of vegetation parameters in key areas of Qilian Mountains (2019)

This data set includes the normalized vegetation index, vegetation coverage, vegetation net primary productivity, grassland biomass, forest stock vegetation parameter remote sensing products in the key area of Qilian mountain from May 2019 to October 2019, and the spatial resolution is 10m. In this data set, remote sensing data sources such as GF-1, GF-6, Sentinel-2, and ZY-3, combined with basic meteorological and ground monitoring data, are used to retrieve vegetation parameters such as band ratio method, mixed pixel decomposition model and CASA model to generate monthly vegetation index remote sensing products of Qilian Mountain in the growing season. This data set provides data support for the diagnosis of regional eco-environmental problems and the dynamic assessment of eco-environment by constructing a high spatial-temporal resolution eco-environmental monitoring data set based on high-resolution satellites.
