Water Background Impacts on Canopy Reflectance Anisotropy... (Dec 1, 2016)

  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 biophysical an...

New Sights: Estimating of Foliage Spatial Distribution fr... (Nov 23, 2016)

  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 unity. CI is...
Researchers Investigate Maternal Health Services in China... (Oct 9, 2016)

  Many public health systems have struggled with the dual questions of why the uptake rate of maternal health (MH) services is low among some subpopulations; and how to raise it.
  In this study, Prof. ZHANG Linxiu and her team from Institute of Geogra...

Researchers Analyze the Uncertainty of Estimating Forest ... (Aug 29, 2016)

  Earth surface systems are controlled by a combination of global and local factors, which cannot be understood without accounting for both the local and global components. The system dynamics cannot be recovered from the global or local controls alone.

What should be Responsible for the Groundwater Salinizati... (Jul 21, 2016)

  Seawater intrusion (SWI) due to groundwater over-exploitation has led to salinization of fresh groundwater in coastal areas, threatening numerous water supply wells worldwide. With agricultural-industrial-urbanized development in the coastal regions, i...

Researchers Estimate Global Blue Carbon under Human Activ... (Jun 23, 2016)

  The carbon sequestration in coastal blue carbon (Cb) ecosystems, including mangroves, seagrasses and saltmarshes, was discovered to be useful in mitigating the increasing trend of carbon dioxide (CO2) emission due to climate change.
  In this study, ...
