    Image showing the mangrove areas in the city of Abu Dhabi

    The Image Of The Week is from our in-house Remote Sensing Specialist, Helena. It shows an enhanced vegetation index over the mangrove areas, directly adjacent to Abu Dhabi city. The purple areas are the mangroves and yellow is the water areas.


    By using ratios that utilise different band combinations, vegetation indices help to give clues relating to the status of vegetation, and are commonly used for classification studies.
