The index captures early signals of “flash drought,” a condition brought about by rapid rise in temperature, leading to drying up of the air, reduced rainfall and moisture evaporating quickly from the soil. It is prudent to monitor the rate of water loss through the use of land surface temperature before and take required remedial measures before the condition actually starts having an effect on the vegetation.
