Linking knowledge among spatial and temporal scales: Vegetation, atmosphere, climate and remote sensing

  title={Linking knowledge among spatial and temporal scales: Vegetation, atmosphere, climate and remote sensing},
  author={Forrest G. Hall and D. E. Strebel and Piers J. Sellers},
  journal={Landscape Ecology},
Global scale modeling is reviewed with respect to global circulation models, biosphere-atmosphere models, and climate-biosphere models. These different models focus on short to long time scale interactions between atmospheric and surface systems. Remote sensing is shown to play a central role in acquisition of data for these models, and an experiment, termed FIFE, is described, which is the first attempt to take simultaneous land surface observations of meteorological and biophysical parameters… CONTINUE READING
