A two-layer model of the bidirectional reflectance of homogeneous vegetation canopies is derived in this paper. The anisotropic scattering of both the vegetation canopy and the background, i.e., bare soil or leaf litter, is taken into consideration in this model. The effect of the anisotropic scattering from the background to the apparent canopy reflectance in different leaf area indices of three leaf-orientation canopies is presented. The model is validated against simulated and field… CONTINUE READING
