Short summary
The relationship between satellite-observed normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) data as a proxy for vegetation greenness and water availability (rainfall and soil moisture) can greatly improve our understanding of how vegetation greenness responds to water availability fluctuations. Using Sen and Pearson’s correlation methods, we analyzed the spatiotemporal variation of vegetation greenness for both the entire year and the growing season (GS,4–10) in northern China from 1982 to 2006.
