Abstract/Contents:"Remotely sensed imagery offers a relatively inexpensive way to analyze environmental change across large tracts of land. In this study, Landsat TM was used to extract temporal and spatial moisture variation of the canyon grasslands in north central Idaho using the stress related vegetation index (SRVI). This index is an algebraic ratio of three TM bands (5 * 3)/ 4) that summarizes reflectance data. Because SRVI is little used, the objective of this study was to determine whether measurements based on SRVI could provide useful information for analysis of seasonal water-relationships across the rough topographic terrain of the canyon grasslands. An unsupervised classification of 1987 Landsat TM images was used to run the SRVI model for range shrub and grass cover types. The SRVI images proved useful in showing typical within-season and across-season moisture variation. The SRVI was also able to depict topographical moisture variability showing an increase in moisture on flatter surfaces than steeper surfaces."
