The accuracy of leaf area index (LAI) retrieval depends critically on the quality of the input reflectance. MODIS Collection 4 (C4) and Collection 5 (C5) land surface reflectance data are used for wheat LAI retrieval. Results are compared with in situ measurements. The uncertainty in the reflectance data of the two collections (C4 and C5) from both Terra(More)
A flow-interval hillslope discretization scheme is proposed for catchment hydrological modelling. By this scheme, a two-dimensional catchment is simplified into a one-dimensional cascade of flow intervals linked by the main stream. Each flow interval comprises a set of parallel hillslopes. The hillslope is the fundamental computational unit in the(More)

[1] With growing interest in understanding the magnitudes and sources of uncertainty in hydrological modeling, the difficult problem of characterizing model structure adequacy is now attracting considerable attention. Here, we examine this problem via a model-structure-independent approach based in information theory. In particular, we (a) discuss how to(More)
The potential of moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer (MODIS) time-series in monitoring crop condition was examined in the Weishan Irrigation Zone along a downstream reach of the Yellow River, China. First, MODIS-derived spectral indices, including the normalized difference water index (NDWI) and normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI), were(More)

This is a preliminary PDF of the author-produced manuscript that has been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication. Since it is being posted so soon after acceptance, it has not yet been copyedited, formatted, or processed by AMS Publications. This preliminary version of the manuscript may be downloaded, distributed, and cited, but please be aware that(More)
In the distributed hydrological simulations for complex mountain areas, large amounts of meteorological input parameters with high spatial and temporal resolutions are necessary. However, the extreme scarcity and uneven distribution of the traditional meteorological observation stations in cold and arid regions of Northwest China makes it very difficult in(More)
The Mekong River is the most important river in Southeast Asia. It has increasingly suffered from water-related problems due to economic development, population growth and climate change in the surrounding areas. In this study, we built a distributed Geomorphology-Based Hydrological Model (GBHM) of the Mekong River using remote sensing data and other(More)
