Linkage between the vegetation indices and climate factors over Haryana
Keywords:Rainfall, NDVI, LAI, Aerosol
Present study was an attempt to study the relationship of Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) and Leaf Area Index (LAI) with climatic parameters (maximum temperature, minimum temperature, relative humidity, rainfall, wind speed and aerosol optical depth) over the Indian state of Haryana using MODIS derived vegetation indices on monthly and yearly values for the time period from 2010 to 2020. The values of correlations coefficients of NDVI and LAI with climatic variables varied with the months, the nature of their variation was similar for two indices. During summer season the correlation values were maximum while these were minimum during rainy season. The overall correlation analysis revealed that the rainfall and relative humidity were positively correlated with NDVI and LAI, while the remaining climate variables had negative impact on the NDVI and LAI.
