One of the most important environmental threats facing the world is global warming. Drought takes the first place of the consequences of climate change brought about by global warming . In this study, drought issue essential for all of the world as well as in Turkey is examined. There are numerous methods applied by many researchers from various disciplines in order to determine droughts. Since remote sensing satellites could monitor large areas fast, accurately, periodically, and economically ; they have been widely used to examine drought impacts in addition to several other environmental applications. Products of one of the well known satellite system, MODIS, have been used for numerous research applications including mapping deforestation, identifying desertification, fire fuel estimation, burn scar identification, ecosystem evolution, invasive species potential, grazing impacts, and crop yield estimation, natural and non-natural disasters, such as floods and droughts in many areas setting a global and regional scale applications due to the its high temporal resolution. MODIS satellite data was used in this research as well considering the above explanation.
