High-Resolution Phenological Data
Measurements of visual plant phenology at both high-spatial and high-temporal resolutions have many applications, but are especially useful for bridging the gap between ground-based phenological measurements and moderate-resolution satellite-derived measures of phenology. Results have demonstrated that satellite-derived phenology does present a reasonable representation of spring growth in a northern mixed forest environment (Wisconsin, USA), given the known temporal limitations. Other applications of high-resolution phenological data, including measurements during the autumn season are under development.
