The Signature of Rainfall in Stream Network Organization and The Dynamics of Vegetation Indices along Climate and Topographic Gradients using Width Function and Remote Sensing Technique


The question “what factors shape the width function?” in stream networks remains unanswered satisfactorily. Also, the distribution and health of vegetation exhibit sensitivity to topological conditions and changing climate. Width Function showed a signature in network organization, yet the magnitude was shadowed by lack of definition in velocity distribution across stream networks. Vegetation indices exhibited some patterns that indicate vegetation health and development. Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) and Enhanced Vegetation Index (EVI) onboard NASA MODIS (Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) is one technique that is harnessed to provide an indicator to measure vegetation response to localised variations in temperature and rainfall associated with topography and altitude. This research employs Width Function and Vegetation Indices to discover the signature of climate variability in catchment response.
