Short summary
Drought effect on vegetation in the eastern part of the Baltic Sea region was determined using satellite data. The impact of precipitation deficit on vegetation on arable land and in broadleaved and coniferous forests was analysed. The precipitation deficit in the first part of the growing season only has a significant impact on the vegetation on arable land, while this impact becomes more evident in all types of vegetation in the second half of the season.
