Juhasz, T., and J. Kornfield, 1978: The Crop Moisture Index: Unnatural response to changes in temperature. J. Appl. Meteorol., 17, 1864-1865, doi:10.1175/1520-0450(1978)017<1864:TCMIUR>2.0.CO;2.

A sensitivity study conducted on the Crop Moisture Index revealed that in some cases the index indicates wetter conditions as temperature increases. The unnatural response is due to the formulation of the evapotranspiration anomaly term. Conditions under which the unnatural behavior occurs are described. A reformulation of the evapotranspiration anomaly term which removes the unnatural response is presented.
