Field measurement of shrubland ecological properties is should be guided by consideration of the amount of time and resources required to obtain measurements of the deimportant for both site monitoring and validation of remote sensing information. During the May 1997 NASA Earth sired variables. Our results suggest that the ADC is both Observing System Jornada Prototype Validation Exercise, efficient and accurate for long-term or large-scale monitorwe calculated plot-level plant area index, leaf… CONTINUE READING
