The Vegetation Index

SENTINEL-3 SLSTR Vegetation index Application

The vegetation index, also known as the Normalised Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) is also available from other missions and is included in the SLSTR products. This parameter is useful in monitoring the phenology state of vegetation or for detecting possible desertification trends. This may also be used as additional information on land surface temperature to support precision farming.

For further information about land applications and services available, see: Copernicus website.
