Cropland mapping relies heavily on field data for algorithm calibration, making it, in many cases, applicable only at the field campaign scale. While the recently launched Sentinel-2 satellite will be able to deliver time series over large regions, it will not really be compatible with the current mapping approach or the available in situ data.

This work provides a description of the research conducted to assess methods for the discrimination between irrigated and rainfed open-tree canopies using advanced spaceborne thermal emission and reflection radiometer (ASTER) satellite imagery and discrete anisotropic radiative transfer (DART) radiative transfer 3D simulation model. Summer and winter ASTER(More)
New remote sensing methods based on narrow-band hyperspectral instruments enable the estimation of vegetation biophysical parameters and leaf biochemicals used to detect nutritional and water stress condition. This paper summarizes new advances in hyperspectral and thermal remote sensing for vegetation monitoring through biochemical and biophysical(More)
It has been demonstrated that the spectrum of fluorescence emission is dependent on leaf temperature, thus there is a need for thermal information in order to interpret fluorescence signals. Temperature is also related to transpiration and stomata closure, which affects C02 uptake and fluorescence. Therefore temperature measurements help to confirm the(More)
Efficient water management in agriculture requires accurate estimation of the evapotranspiration (ET) of crops. This work presents the progress made on assessing the water status and ET estimation on discontinuous crop canopies where soil and shadow components affect the remote sensing imagery used. Two orchards used to conduct regulated deficit irrigation(More)
