Title:
Integrating satellite retrieved leaf chlorophyll into land surface models for constraining simulations of water and carbon fluxes
Authors:
Houborg, Rasmus; Cescatti, Alessandro; Gitelson, Anatoly A.
Abstract:
In terrestrial biosphere models, key biochemical controls on carbon uptake by vegetation canopies are typically assigned fixed literature-based values for broad categories of vegetation types although in reality significant spatial and temporal variability exists. Satellite remote sensing can support modeling efforts by offering distributed information on important land surface characteristics, which would be very difficult to obtain otherwise. This study investigates the utility of satellite based retrievals of leaf chlorophyll for estimating leaf photosynthetic capacity and for constraining model simulations of water and carbon fluxes. © 2013 IEEE.
