dc.description.abstractWe assessed the capability of AVIRIS and MODIS to estimate canopy water content. Hyperspectral water retrievals with AVIRIS data, EWT, were compared to in situ leaf water content and LAI measurements at a semi-arid site in southeastern Arizona. Retrievals of EWT showed good correlation with field canopy water content measurements. Statistical analysis also suggested that EWT was significant among seven different vegetation communities. Four MODIS indexes derived from band ratios using the reflectance product and were compared to retrievals of EWT with AVIRIS at both the semi-arid site and a temperate conifer forest. Good statistical agreements were found between AVIRIS EWT and all four MODIS indexes at the semi-arid site in savanna shrub communities. Slightly poorer correlations were found at the forest site where water indexes had better correlation to AVIRIS EWT than vegetation indexes. Temporal patterns of the four indexes in all semi-arid vegetation communities except creosote bush and agriculture show distinct seasonal variation and responded to precipitation at the savanna site. Three years of net ecosystem exchange (NEE) data from eddy covariance measurements at the forest site were compared to the time series of MODIS indexes. MODIS water indexes showed similar seasonal patterns to NEE that were strongest during the period of net carbon sequestration. In contrast, the time series of MODIS vegetation indexes did not yield a good relationship to NEEen_US
