I have calculated EVI2 using landsat 7 surface reflectance images and I am getting values above 1.25 (mathematical maximum for EVI2 based on the formula) in my study area (heavily vegetated). I get a range between 0.2 and 1.8. Many publications stipulate -1 to 1, especially based on MODIS data. I also did a check with Landsat 7 TOA images, and I get ranges from -1 to 1, as the publications say. Does this mean something is wrong with the Landsat 7 surface reflectance images, or should values above 1.25 still be okay?
