This paper extends the turbid medium approach used for modeling bidirectional reflectance from horizontal plant canopies to sloping terrain with a vertically oriented plant stand. Previous treatments have accounted for terrain slope by simple adaptation to an inclined plane of models for horizontal surfaces. However, such treatments implicitly assume that plants grow perpendicularly to the surface, despite the fact that plant stems continue to grow vertically on slopes. We investigate the… CONTINUE READING
