Basic information

Name Crop water stress index
Abbreviation CWSI
Formula ( C - A ) C - A
Variables
Expl. of Variables where points A and B represent the surface minus air temperature difference at a particular percent cover for a non-stressed and completely stressed crop, respectively, with a dry soil background. Points to the left of the line formed between points 1
Wavelengths
Source Original formula
Description Based on canopy temperature and meteorological conditions where points A and B represent the surface minus air temperature difference at a particular percent cover for a non-stressed and completely stressed crop, respectively, with a dry soil background. Points to the left of the line formed between points 1 and 4 represent a moist soil background and no water stress is assumed under these conditions. Point C was determined based on the measured NDVI and surface – air temperature difference. From Eq. [2], a CWSI of 0 corresponds to a well-watered crop with a dry soil background, while 1 represents a water-stressed crop.
