Invertible canopy reflectance modeling of vegetation structure in semiarid woodland



Invertible canopy reflectance modeling of vegetation structure in semiarid woodland



IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing 26(6): 809-825



A canopy reflectance model of Li and Strahler, which exploits tree geometry in an inversion technique, was used with Landsat Thematic Mapper multispectral data to give regional estimates of tree size and density in sparse woodland and wooded grassland in the Sahelian and Sudanian bioclimatic zones of Mali.
