Validation of Leaf Area Index (LAI) derived from moderate resolution remote sensing observations generally involves optical technique to measure ground LAI. As the current validation datasets are derived using multiple optical retrieval techniques, assessment of the consistency between these techniques is required. In this study the effective Plant Area Index (PAIeff) retrievals by three major optical instruments, LAI-2000, AccuPAR, and Digital Hemispherical Photographs (DHPs), were analyzed… CONTINUE READING
