  abstract =     "Remote sensing has become a powerful tool to derive
                 biophysical properties of plants. One of the most
                 popular methods for extracting vegetation information
                 from remote sensing data is through vegetation indices.
                 Models to predict soil erosion like the Revised
                 Universal Soil Loss Equation (RUSLE) can use vegetation
                 indices as input to measure the effects of soil cover.
                 Several studies correlate vegetation indices with
                 RUSLE's cover factor to get a linear mapping that
                 describes a broad area. The results are considered as
                 incomplete because most indices only detect healthy
                 vegetation. The aim of this study is to devise a
                 genetic programming approach to synthetically create
                 vegetation indices that detect healthy, dry, and dead
                 vegetation. In this work, the problem is posed as a
                 search problem where the objective is to find the best
                 indices that maximise the correlation of field data
                 with Landsat5-TM imagery. Thus, the algorithm builds
                 new indices by iteratively recombining
                 primitive-operators until the best indices are found.
                 This article outlines a GP methodology that was able to
                 design new vegetation indices that are better
                 correlated than traditional man-made index.
                 Experimental results demonstrate through a real world
                 example using a survey at Todos Santos Watershed, that
                 it is viable to design novel indexes that achieve a
                 much better performance than common indices such as
                 NDVI, EVI, and SAVI.",
