This paper presents the analysis of radiative transfer assumptions underlying moderate resolution imaging spectroradiometer (MODIS) leaf area index (LAI) and fraction of photosynthetically active radiation (FPAR) algorithm for the case of spatially heterogeneous broadleaf forests. Data collected by a Boston University research group during the July 2000 field campaign at the Earth Observing System (EOS) core validation site, Harvard Forest, MA, were used for this purpose. The analysis covers… CONTINUE READING
