Calculate the amplitude of datasets over a time-series

With the Google Earth Engine, it’s very easy to calculate the amplitude of any time-series datasets. The amplitude in wave physics is defined as the distance between the high and the low peak as shown in the picture below. Similarly, for any raster datasets for a time series, the amplitude is the difference of the … CONTINUE READING
