Use of General Regression Neural Networks for Generating the GLASS Leaf Area Index Product From Time-Series MODIS Surface Reflectance
Leaf area index (LAI) products at regional and global scales are being routinely generated from individual instrument data acquired at a specific time. As a result of cloud contamination and otherExpand

An Improved Land Surface Emissivity Parameter for Land Surface Models Using Global Remote Sensing Observations
Abstract Because land surface emissivity (e) has not been reliably measured, global climate model (GCM) land surface schemes conventionally set this parameter as simply constant, for example, 1 as inExpand

MODIS-driven estimation of terrestrial latent heat flux in China based on a modified Priestley-Taylor algorithm
a b s t r a c t Because of China's large size, satellite observations are necessary for estimation of the land surface latent heat flux (LE). We describe here a satellite-driven Priestley-TaylorExpand
