Abstract

The paper published by the authors in Teknik Dergi presents an agricultural drought analysis using vegetation indices by considering the historical drought archives and applying them to the Asi Basin. The authors apply the NDVI and VCI indices, which have gained importance in recent literature, by using the remote sensing method. The work concludes that the NDVI index was more appropriate for the Asi Basin than the VCI index to monitor drought.
