The tasseled cap index percentiles provide statistical (10th, 50th and 90th percentile) summaries of the tasseled cap wetness index from 1987 to 2018.
They are intended for use as inputs into classification algorithms to identify wetlands and characterise salt flats, clay pans, salt lakes and coastal land forms. The tasseled cap wetness transform translates the six spectral bands of Landsat into a single wetness index. The wetness index can be used to identify areas in the landscape that are potentially wetlands or groundwater dependent ecosystems. The tasseled cap wetness percentiles captures how the wetness index behaves over time. The percentiles are well suited to characterising wetlands, salt flats/salt lakes and coastal ecosystems. However, care should be applied when analysing the wetness index, as soil colour and fire scars can cause misleading results.
