  1. Dynamic Land Cover Dataset Version 2: characterising vegetation disturbance using

    DLCDv2 with the ALA Leo Lymburner Peter Tan Alexis McIntyre Geoscience Australia National Earth Observation Group

The Enhanced Vegetation Index changes with season. Low EVI = brown High EVI = green Enhanced Vegetation Index
