—Process models are widely used tools, both for studying fundamental processes themselves and as elements of larger system studies. A radiative transfer model (RTM) simulates the interaction of light with a medium. We are interested in RTMs that model light reflected from a vegetated region. Such an RTM takes as input various biospheric and illumination(More)
By viewing the multigroup diffusion equation in plane, cylindrical and spherical geometries as matrix equations, standard solution techniques for second order ordinary differential equations can be applied to find analytical solutions. By adjusting the boundary conditions appropriately, a solution with the simplicity of the one-group case in the three(More)
