RSS-6: Modeling and Remote Sensing of Radiant Energy Interactions and Physiological Functioning in a Boreal Ecosystem

P.I.(s): Darrel Williams, Ranga Myneni--NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center

Objectives: The objectives of this study are:

The physical problem is posed as a 3D radiative transfer equation (RTE), describing the interaction of photons in the atmosphere/vegetation medium, the solution of which is the remote spectral measurement. We are developing models of boreal forest community at the BOREAS experimental sites using fractals and computer graphics.
