Analysis of changes in the phenological cycle of different plant species provide important information that may be used to assess the impact of seasonal and inter-annual climate variations on terrestrial vegetation. Phenex software has been used for estimating phenology related layers for Donana marshes relying on NDVI time series covering one year period from 01/12/2015 to 31/11/2016.
“Phenology_metrics_layer_Dec2015_Nov2016.tif” includes the following layers: (i) green up day, (ii) senescence day, (iii) day of max NDVI value, and (iv) total number of NDVI peaks. These layers are also provided separately with the names: “Greenup_day_Dec2015_Nov2016.tif”, “Senescence_day_Dec2015_Nov2016.tif”, “Max_day_Dec2015_Nov2016.tif”, “Number_of_peaks_Dec2015_Nov2016.tif”.
Classification layers based on these layers have been also generated. In particular, "ISODATA_classification_all_input_layers_Dec2015_Nov2016.tif" layer contains the classes generated when providing all phenology related layers as input to the ISODATA algorithm, while "ISODATA_classification_three_input_layers_Dec2015_Nov2016.tif" layer contains contains the classes generated when providing three penology related layers (i.e. greenup day, day of max NDVI value, senescence day layers) as input to the ISODATA algorithm.
