Short summary
Anthropogenic land degradation affects many terrestrial processes, including reductions of net primary productivity. This study identifies degradation through spatial comparison of areas with similar growth potentials in six semiarid river basins in Australia using satellite data from 2000 to 2013. Varying severities and rates of degradation were detected across the basins, most linked to indirect management. Evidence of permanent degradation was found despite an overall trend of greening.
