Abstract
This dissertation investigated the practicality and expediency of applying remote sensing data fusion products to the analysis of dryland vegetation phenology. The objective of the first study was to verify the quality of the output products of the spatial and temporal adaptive reflectance fusion method (STARFM) over the dryland Arizona study site. Synthetic 30 m resolution images were generated from Landsat-5 Thematic Mapper (TM) data and a range of 500 m Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) surface reflectance datasets and assessed via correlation analysis with temporally coincident Landsat-5 imagery. The accuracy of the results (0.61 < R2 < 0...
