poster relates volumetric water quantities in the Nile basin
to national biomass productions.
volumes of rainfall are calculated for the respective basin
parts of the Nile riparian countries. Rain volumes are set
out against average stream flow volumes in a simple surface
biomass production is calculated using the NormalizedDifference
Vegetation Index (NDVI). The NDVI is calculated on a monthly
basis. Data are derived from MODIS TERRA for the period
2000 – 2004.
