Assessment of Combined Drought Index (CDI) for Drought Monitoring in the Philippines During the 2018-2019 El Niño

The Philippines is vulnerable to the impacts drought, which resulted to millions of dollars of damages in crops and livestock. In this study, a combined drought index (CDI) was developed to monitor the transition from meteorological to agricultural drought. It combines monthly land surface temperature (LST), normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI), and the three-month rainfall represented by the standardized precipitation index (SPI-3).

This paper is part of the conference proceedings of the 43rd Asian Conference on Remote Sensing (ACRS 2022).
