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.

Taking advantage of positive features of the Nilson-Kuusk and the SAIL canopy reflectance (CA) models, a new fast CR model has been developed. The new model considers the diffuse and specular reflection of shortwave radiation on leaves, the canopy...

A technique of estimating agronomic and spectral parameters for a vegetation canopy from canopy reflectance was improved and the improvements illustrated using Suits' model. The analysis suggested that it was unlikely that agronomic parameter...
