Water Background Impacts on Canopy Reflectance Anisotropy from Multi-angle Measurements of a Paddy Rice Field

  Surface reflectance varies with solar radiance and observation angles and is usually described with a bidirectional reflectance distribution function (BRDF). The surface BRDF is important for remote sensing retrieval of vegetation canopy biop...

New Sights: Estimating of Foliage Spatial Distribution from Multi-angle Remote Sensing Data

  The spatial distribution of vegetation foliage can be described with a canopy clumping index (CI). If leaves are randomly distributed in space, the CI is unity. Most vegetation leaves show clumped spatial distribution, i.e., a CI less than un...
