Abstract:

This is the final report in a series. Overall objectives of this project are concerned with developing comprehensive optical and thermal signature data bases, the development and evaluation of optical and thermal canopy radiation models, and the interpretation of these measurements. Previous technical reports in this series have described optical and thermal measurements obtained over a coniferous site Pinus contorta in Leadville, Colorado. This earlier data set served as a test bed for the development and initial evaluation of first, individual components, that is, needle and leaves, thermal models, and then a composite canopy terrain model.
