Vegetation loss in grasslands in the Caucasus
2002-2018

DATASET VARIABLE TIMESTEP OPACITY

Description

Annual green vegetation loss rate, presented together for short-term vegetation loss (3-9 years) and decadal (> 10 years) degradation. The change rate is derived as a pixel-specific magnitude (i.e., change in green vegetation Cumulative Endmember Fraction (CEF) between the first and the last year of each trend segment) divided by the length (in years) of the respective trend segment. CEF is scaled between 0 and 1.

For a full description of the Cumulative Endmember Fraction (CEF) and the methodology used to produce the datasets, please see the related publication listed above.
