Forest and non-forest samples selected from an existing European forest map were classified using 8 months of cloud-screened European AVHRR data divided into 82 ecological/climatic strata. Consistently higher mean monthly forest/non-forest classification accuracies were found when the samples were classified using Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) and surface temperature ( T ) data rather than using NDVI or T data alone.
