  • Spatial and temporal sampling of ecosystem optical properties with the UniSpec-DC

    Satellite sensors (e.g. MODIS) provide large spatial patterns with regional or global coverage (Chen, 1999). However, the coarse resolution of satellite sensors are sometimes problematic, particularly for patchy landscapes (Turner et al., 2003). To properly validate and interpret satellite imagery, additional ground remotely sensed and biophysical data are needed. The UniSpec-DC (PP Systems, ...
