Abstract

ALMEIDA, André Quintão de; SILVA, Gilson Fernandes da; PEZZOPANE, José Eduardo Macedo  and  RIBEIRO, Carlos Alexandre Damasceno. Use of Enhanced Vegetation Index (EVI) in the analysis os vegetation dynamics of the Sooretama biological reservation, ES. Rev. Árvore [online]. 2008, vol.32, n.6, pp. 1099-1107. ISSN 0100-6762.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-67622008000600015.

Temporal series analysis techniques are used to characterize the behavior of natural phenomenon in time domain. In this paper, 125 Enhanced Vegetation Index (EVI) observations were analyzed according to the methodology proposed by Box et al.(1994). The values modeled correspond to the temporal variations that occurred in the forest canopy of the Sooretama Biological Reserve, in northern Espírito Santo, in the district of Linhares. The results indicated that such methodology was adequate. The residues of the adjusted model are not correlated with normal distribution, zero average and s2 variance. At the lowest value of the Akaike Information Criteria (AIC) -570. 51, the model adjusted was the Mobile Average Integrated Self-Regressive Seasonal model (1, 0, 1) (1, 0, 1)-12.
