Abstract

The canopy and atmosphere radiative transfer models SLC and MODTRAN were coupled to simulate top-of-atmosphere (TOA) radiance data for 3 Norway spruce stands in Eastern Czech Republic. The simulations fitted the near-nadir CHRIS radiance data well. A sensitivity analysis based on the singular value decomposition of the Jacobian matrix provided useful information for building the look up tables needed to estimate needle and canopy parameters. Canopy cover, fraction of bark in the plant area index, needle chlorophyll and dry matter content were estimated using the TOA CHRIS radiance. For comparison, the simulations, sensitivity analysis and parameter estimations were also conducted for the top of canopy (TOC) level, using atmospherically corrected CHRIS reflectance data. The results showed that the TOA approach performs as good as the TOC approach and allowed decreasing the ill-posedness for at least one stand.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
