Regreening versus local climate change: how vegetation activity alterations relate to local hydro-meteorology in the Mediterranean Basin.
MetadataShow full item record
In the Mediterranean, heatwaves and drought intensity and occurrence are projected to increase. As some studies and theories suggest a cooling and wetting effect of vegetation activity, this study aimed to gain a better understanding of how vegetation relates to the local climate of the Mediterranean Basin. The research was conducted by means of a remote-sensing data analysis. The change from 1982-2020 of the NOAA ANVHRR NDVI was correlated with changes of hydro-meteorological variables of the E
