Mapping forest vegetation using landsat TM imagery and a canopy reflectance model
Abstract Estimates of mean tree size and cover for each forest stand from an invertible forest canopy reflectance model are part of a new forest vegetation mapping system. Image segmentation definesExpand

Monitoring surface soil moisture status based on remotely sensed surface temperature and vegetation index information
Surface soil moisture is a key variable for describing water and energy exchanges at the surface/atmosphere interface. The triangle or trapezoid method is appropriate for monitoring the regionalExpand

A conceptual model for effective directional emissivity from nonisothermal surfaces
We present a conceptual model of thermal emission from nonisothermal land surfaces by combining the merits of the DW BRDF model and the KSL GO model. Expand

Fast physical random number generator using amplified spontaneous emission.
We report a 12.5 Gb/s physical random number generator (RNG) that uses high-speed threshold detection of the spectrally-sliced incoherent light produced by a fiber amplifier. The system generates aExpand

A hybrid geometric optical-radiative transfer approach for modeling albedo and directional reflectance of discontinuous canopies
A new model for the bidirectional reflectance of a vegetation cover combines principles of geometric optics and radiative transfer. It relies on gap probabilities and path length distributions toExpand

An Analytical Solution for Raindrop Evaporation and Its Application to Radar Rainfall Measurements
Abstract An analytical solution for the evaporation of a single raindrop is derived in this paper. Based on this solution, a parameter D* is defined as the diameter of the raindrop that justExpand

Monitoring haze episodes over the Yellow Sea by combining multisensor measurements
Haze, which is composed of a wide range of aerosol particles, is one of the most hazardous weather conditions because of its adverse impact on health and its deleterious effect on visibility, leadingExpand
