greenness:  The biophysical property of the surface of the earth that indicates its greenness in a biological sense and gives a qualitative estimate of green biomass.  It measures plant vigor, water wellness, and chlorophyll content.  Greenness can be computed from Landsat MSS or TM images and stored in a raster object by Kauth’s greenness, brightness, wetness transformations.
