SCS+C: a modified Sun-canopy-sensor topographic correction in forested terrain
Topographic correction based on sun-canopy-sensor (SCS) geometry is more appropriate than terrain-based corrections in forested areas. Expand
A multiscale texture analysis procedure for improved forest stand classification
This paper presents a multiscale approach to image texture where first and second-order statistical measures were derived from different sizes of processing windows and were used as additional information in a supervised classification. Expand
Estimating aboveground forest biomass from canopy reflectance model inversion in mountainous terrain
Abstract The amount and spatial distribution of aboveground forest biomass (AGB) are required inputs to forest carbon budgets and ecosystem productivity models. Satellite remote sensing offersExpand
Improved topographic correction of forest image data using a 3‐D canopy reflectance model in multiple forward mode
In most forestry remote sensing applications in steep terrain, simple photometric and empirical (PE) topographic corrections are confounded as a result of stand structure and species assemblages thatExpand
Simulating the hydrological response to predicted climate change on a watershed in southern Alberta, Canada
The current body of research in western North America indicates that water resources in southern Alberta are vulnerable to climate change impacts. The objective of this research was to parameterizeExpand
Weed and crop discrimination using hyperspectral image data and reduced bandsets
Accurate and efficient weed detection in crop fields is a key requirement for directed herbicide application in real-time Site-Specific Weed Management (SSWM). Using very high spatial resolutionExpand
A low-cost field and laboratory goniometer system for estimating hyperspectral bidirectional reflectance
The derivation of the bidirectional reflectance distribution function (BRDF) from earth-surface features provides a more complete basis for the estimation of both surface composition and physicalExpand
Drought stress ecophysiology of shrub and grass functional groups on opposing slope aspects of a temperate grassland valley
Plant functional groups with contrasting growth strategies co-occur in semiarid ecosystems. In the northern Great Plains, woody shrubs and grasses interact competitively, with shrubs prevalent onExpand
Radiometric and spectral comparison of inexpensive camera systems used for remote sensing
This study compared the radiometric and spectral characteristics of 10 imaging systems commonly used in UAV research. Expand
Anisotropic reflectance effects on spectral indices for estimating ecophysiological parameters using a portable goniometer system
Remote sensing studies are affected by the inherently anisotropic nature of reflectance from natural surfaces. The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of anisotropic reflectance onExpand
