Exploring the utility of NOAA AVHRR middle infrared reflectance to monitor the impacts of ENSO-induced drought stress on Sabah rainforests

Record type: Article

The ever-wet tropics are under threat from ENSO events and there is a need for a monitoring system to analyse and describe their responses to such events. This letter explores the relative value of using NOAA AVHRR middle infrared (MIR) reflectance data and NDVI data for the monitoring of ENSO-related drought stress of a tropical forest ecosystem in Sabah, Malaysia. Relationships between rainfall and MIR reflectance were examined. Correlation coefficients are generally large and significant (at 0.1 level) while those between rainfall and NDVI were small and insignificant. This letter concludes that there is potential in using MIR reflectance for monitoring the effects of ENSO-induced drought stress on these forests and this has a bearing on how NOAA AVHRR data may be used to further our knowledge on the impacts of ENSO events on tropical forest environments.
