Using the Minnaert-k parameter derived from CHRIS/PROBA data for forest heterogeneity mapping - Zurich Open Repository and Archive


Verrelst, J; Clevers, J G P W; Schaepman, M E (2010). Using the Minnaert-k parameter derived from CHRIS/PROBA data for forest heterogeneity mapping. In: Hyperspectral Workshop 2010, Frascati, IT, 17 March 2010 - 19 March 2010, 1-8.

Abstract

CHRIS/PROBA is capable of sampling reflected radiation at five viewing angles over the visible and near-infrared regions of the solar spectrum with a relatively high spatial resolution (~17m). We exploited both the spectral and angular domain of CHRIS data in order to map the surface heterogeneity of an Alpine coniferous forest during winter. In the spectral domain, linear spectral unmixing of the nadir image resulted in a canopy cover map. In the angular domain, pixelwise inversion of the Rahman–Pinty–Verstraete (RPV) model at a single wavelength at the red edge (722 nm) yielded a map of the Minnaert-k parameter that provided information on surface heterogeneity at subpixel scale. Merging both maps resulted in a forest cover heterogeneity map, which contains more detailed information on canopy heterogeneity at the CHRIS subpixel scale than can be obtained from a single-source data set.

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.
