More information

The affected area is expressed in km2.

The size of the impacted area is calculated annually from the sum of those 500mx500m grid cells, where both the soil moisture and the vegetation productivity anomaly were below -1 and -0.5 standard deviation, respectively. The vegetation productivity is estimated using the Medium Resolution Vegetation Phenology and Productivity datasets of the Copernicus Land Monitoring Service.
