Satellite-based forest health monitoring using coarse resolution data: focus on the 2003 and 2011 droughts in France

Abstract : Numerous studies showed the impact of droughts events on the seasonal dynamic of satellite-based vegetation index but validation and relation to ground observations is still lacking. Focusing on the impacts of 2003 and 2011 droughts events, we defined and validated forest health indicators using extensive in-situ damage inventories carried out on all French forests. Analysis of vegetation indices dynamics (EVI, LAI) at the national scale was performed using MODIS and SPOT VEGETATION products (MOD13A2 V5 and CYCLOPES V3.1). Satellite-based indicators of (i) crown condition - which is itself a commonly used forest health indicator - and (ii) leaf phenology anomalies were calibrated and validated. In our study, average of CYCLOPES LAI during the growing season is a good proxi of crown condition (r2=0.79, p<0.001). Inter-annual MODIS EVI anomalies can effectively capture drought effects on the vegetation dynamics and its recovery both in time and space.
