In preparation for new satellite sensors, such as VEGEciated with vegetation, and as an input to ecosystem proTATION on SPOT-4 and the MODerate Resolution Imductivity models (Sellers et al., 1986; Bonan, 1993; Liu aging Spectrometer (MODIS), we investigate the potenet al., 1997). The need for LAI information over large tial of the shortwave infrared (SWIR) signal to improve areas has prompted investigations of the relationship beLeaf Area Index (LAI) retrieval in the boreal forests of tween… CONTINUE READING
