In the framework of the candidate EE-8 ESA/FLEX mission, different Solar-Induced Fluorescence (SIF) retrieval algorithms are under implementation and testing. The Spectral Fitting Method is the baseline for the fluorescence retrievals for FLEX, since it is a powerful technique to decouple canopy reflected radiance and SIF by exploiting the high-resolution(More)
Remote Sensing of Sun-Induced Chlorophyll Fluorescence (SIF) is a research field of growing interest because it offers the potential to quantify actual photosynthesis and to monitor plant status. New satellite missions from the European Space Agency, such as the Earth Explorer 8 FLuorescence EXplorer (FLEX) mission—scheduled to launch in 2022 and aiming at(More)
Sun-induced chlorophyll fluorescence (F) is a novel remote sensing parameter providing an estimate of actual photosynthetic rates. A combination of this new observable and Monteith's light use efficiency (LUE) concept was suggested for an advanced modeling of gross primary productivity (GPP). In this demonstration study, we evaluate the potential of both F(More)
Biogeosciences Discussions This discussion paper is/has been under review for the journal Biogeosciences (BG). Please refer to the corresponding final paper in BG if available. Abstract In this study two crop species, winter wheat (Triticum aestivum) and sugar beet (Beta vulgaris), were monitored over the course of five days during the entire season. We(More)
