Leaf Area Index (LAI) plays a prominent role as an indicator of forest ecosystem condition in research on change detection. For this, rapid and reliable estimation of the effective LAI (LAIe) — this is the ratio of the total one-sided area of vegetation elements over the unit ground area) —...
We develop a simple, analytical model for canopy resistance to canopy–atmosphere gas exchange that is well suited for incorporation into regional-scale land-surface parameterizations. This model exploits the conservative nature of canopy light-use efficiency (LUE) in carbon assimilation that is...
A simulation model of light partitioning in horizontally homogeneous multispecies canopies is proposed. The model is based on the Kubelka–Munk equations (KM) applied to a mixture of N vegetation components. Only two hemispherical fluxes, i.e. downwards and upwards, are considered. The exact...
A statistical interpolation method is proposed which allows calculation of the leaf area index LAI( t ), the downward cumulative leaf area index L ( z , t ) and the canopy leaf area density u ( z , t ) as the functions of height and time for any day of the growth period. The method is based on...
