The vegetation parameter in the key area of Qilian Mountain (2018)

The vegetation parameter in the key area of Qilian Mountain (2018)

This dataset includes remote sensing estimation of normalized differential vegetation index (NDVI), vegetation coverage , vegetation net primary productivity (NPP), grassland biomass, and forest stock volume from May 2018 to October 2018 in key areas of Qilian Mountains. The spatial resolution is 8m. This dataset uses remote sensing data sources such as Gaofen-1, Gaofen-6, sentinel, and resources satellite three. Combined with the basic data such as meteorology and ground monitoring. Using the band ratio method, mixed pixel decomposition model, CASA model and other inversion algorithms and models. Generate the growing season seasonal vegetation index remote sensing product. This dataset builds a high-temporal resolution eco-environmental monitoring dataset based on high-resolution satellites. Provide data support for regional ecological environmental problem diagnosis and ecological environment dynamic assessment.
