Title: Estimation of Moisture Content of Forest Canopy and Floor from SAR Data Part I: Volume Scattering Case
Authors: Moghaddam, M.
Saatchi, S.
Issue Date: May-1996
Citation: Lincoln, NE
Abstract: To understand and predict the functioning of forest biomes, their interaction with the atmosphere, and their growth rates, the knowledge of moisture content of their canopy and the floor soil is essential. The synthetic aperture radar on airborne and spaceborne platforms has proven to be a flexible tool for measuring electromagnetic back- scattering properties of vegetation related to their moisture content.
