Ambika, A., Mishra, V. (2022). Enhancing drought monitoring and assessment capability in India through high-resolution (250 m) data. Earth System Science Data Discussions, 1-24
Understanding the impacts of drought on agriculture is hampered due to the lack of high-resolution data in India. Moreover, most of the existing drought monitoring system do not account for the influence of irrigation on drought mitigation. To fill these crucial gaps in drought assessment capability, we develop a high-resolution (250 m) dataset of land surface temperature (LST) and enhanced vegetation index (EVI) for India for 2000–2017 period.
