Estimating productivity cycle in coffee crops with L8 OLI/TIRS, Hawaii
Authors: Flora Paganelli
Sharpening thermal imagery Landsat 8 TIRS to higher resolutions, typically associated with the shorter wavebands OLI used to compute vegetation indices, is examined over coffee crops production areas in the Kona Coffee Belt area, Hawaii.
This algorithm is based on the assumption that a unique relationship between radiometric surface temperature and vegetation index exists at multiple resolutions. Preliminary results show potential to identify productivity cycles at local and regional scales.
