An unmixing-based data fusion technique is used to generate images that have the spatial resolution of Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) and the spectral resolution provided by the Medium Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MERIS) sensor. The method requires the optimization of the following two parameters: the number of classes used to classify the TM image and(More)
Canopy water content (CWC) is important for mapping and monitoring the condition of the terrestrial ecosystem. Spectral information related to the water absorption features at 970 nm and 1200 nmoffers possibilities for deriving information on CWC. In this study,we compare the use of derivative spectra, spectral indices and continuum removal techniques for(More)

Hyperspectral remote sensing has demonstrated great potential for accurate retrieval of canopy water content (CWC). This CWC is defined by the product of the leaf equivalent water thickness (EWT) and the leaf area index (LAI). In this paper, in particular the spectral information provided by the canopy water absorption feature at 970 nm for estimating and(More)
In this paper, we carried out a laboratory experiment to study changes in canopy reflectance of Tamarugo plants under controlled water stress. Tamarugo (Prosopis tamarugo Phil.) is an endemic and endangered tree species adapted to the hyper-arid conditions of the Atacama Desert, Northern Chile. Observed variation in reflectance during the day (due to leaf(More)
Sentinel-2 is planned for launch in 2014 by the European Space Agency and it is equipped with the Multi Spectral Instrument (MSI), which will provide images with high spatial, spectral and temporal resolution. It covers the VNIR/SWIR spectral region in 13 bands and incorporates two new spectral bands in the rededge region, which can be used to derive(More)
In this study the estimation of canopy chlorophyll and nitrogen content using hyperspectral reflectance data is presented. A large range of canopies was simulated using the PROSAIL radiative transfer model at a 1 nm sampling interval. Several widely used chlorophyll-related vegetation indices were tested in estimating canopy chlorophyll content.(More)
Historic land-cover/use change is important for studies on climate change, soil carbon, and biodiversity assessments. Available reconstructions focus on the net area difference between two time steps (net changes) instead of accounting for all area gains and losses (gross changes). This leads to a serious underestimation of land-cover/use dynamics with(More)
The Compact High Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (CHRIS) mounted onboard the Project for Onboard Autonomy (PROBA) spacecraft is capable of sampling reflected radiation at five viewing angles over the visible and near-infrared regions of the solar spectrum with high spatial resolution. We combined the spectral domain with the angular domain of CHRIS data in(More)
