Introduction -- Basics of radiation physics for remote sensing of vegetation -- Radiative properties of vegetation, soils, and water -- Plant and canopy function -- Earth observation systems -- Preparation and manipulation of optical data -- Use of spectral information for sensing vegetation properties and for image classification -- Multiangular sensing of vegetation structure and modelling of radiation-transfer properties -- Remote sensing of canopy mass and heat exchanges -- Sampling, error, and scaling -- Integrated applications.
Abstract: Remote sensing is becoming an increasingly important tool for agriculturalists, ecologists, and land managers for the study of the earth's agricultural and natural vegetation, and can be applied to further our understanding of key environmental issues, including climate change and ecosystem management
