Net Radiation and Vegetation NDVI

NASA Earth Observatory, NASA

This site allows you to combine the NDVI vegetation index with Net Solar Radiation values. The Normalized Difference Vegetation Index, or NDVI, is an index of green leaf density. The higher the value, the more luxuriant the vegetation. This is but one of many animated datasets that can be combined to introduce correlations and interactions between radiant energy and the biosphere.
