EUROSPEC: at the interface between remote-sensing and ecosystem CO2 flux measurements in Europe
Abstract. Resolving the spatial and temporal dynamics of gross primary productivity (GPP) of terrestrial ecosystems across different scales remains a challenge. Remote sensing is regarded as theExpand

Leaf and canopy photosynthesis of a chlorophyll deficient soybean mutant.
The photosynthetic, optical, and morphological characteristics of a chlorophyll-deficient (Chl-deficient) "yellow" soybean mutant (MinnGold) were examined in comparison with 2 green varieties (MN0095Expand

WhiteRef: A New Tower-Based Hyperspectral System for Continuous Reflectance Measurements
TLDR
We present the WhiteRef, a new hyperspectral system designed as a direct result of the needs identified during the EUROSPEC ES0903 Cost Action, and developed by Fondazione Edmund Mach and the Institute of Biometeorology, CNR. Expand

Remote Sensing of Grassland Biophysical Parameters in the Context of the Sentinel-2 Satellite Mission
TLDR
This study investigates the potential of the Sentinel-2 satellite for monitoring the seasonal changes in grassland total canopy chlorophyll content (CCC), fraction of photosynthetically active radiation absorbed by the vegetation canopy (FAPAR), and fraction of photoactive radiation absorbed only by its photosynthesizing components.

Monitoring of carbon dioxide fluxes in a subalpine grassland ecosystem of the Italian Alps using a multispectral sensor
The study investigates the potential of a commercially available proximal sensing system – based on a 16-band multispectral sensor – for monitoring mean midday gross ecosystem production (GEP m ) inExpand

Sun-Induced Chlorophyll Fluorescence I: Instrumental Considerations for Proximal Spectroradiometers
TLDR
We model the impact of different instrument noise and bias on the retrieval of SIF; and to assess uncertainty requirements for the calibration and characterization of state-of-the-art SIF-oriented spectroradiometers. Expand

Hyplant-Derived Sun-Induced Fluorescence - A New Opportunity to Disentangle Complex Vegetation Signals from Diverse Vegetation Types
TLDR
Hyperspectral remote sensing (RS) provides unique possibilities to monitor peatland vegetation traits and their temporal dynamics at a fine spatial scale. Expand

Improving remote estimation of winter crops gross ecosystem production by inclusion of leaf area index in a spectral model
The hysteresis of the seasonal relationships between vegetation indices (VIs) and gross ecosystem production (GEP) results in differences between these relationships during vegetative andExpand
