Abstract

Relationships between satellite normalised difference vegetation index (NDVI) and outgoing longwave radiation (OLR) data are studied over Southern Africa. Analysis of the seasonal cycle confirms an inverse relationship, whereby reduced OLR in summer contributes to an increase in the vegetative density and cover. - (AJC)
