ABSTRACT HETEROGENEOUS canopy experiments for RAMI-IV
This page provides access to ABSTRACT canopy representations with HETEROGENOUS distributions of scatterers (Foliage). Three different scenarios are proposed that feature 1) anisotropic background conditions (snow, bare soil, vegetation), 2) heterogeneous over and understoreys, and 3) a constant slope of the background. Graphical visualizations of these environments are available via the respective links below.
|Prior to the performing of any RT model simulations, please refer to the 'definitions' pages for detailed instructions regarding the angular sign conventions for BRF simulations, as well as precise definitions of the required leaf normal distributions and other RT model technicalities. Also read the relevant file naming and formatting conventions that must be adhered to by all participants. RAMI-IV also offers participants the possibility to test the compliance of their model-generated results files with these file-naming and formatting convention, prior to their submission via ftp: To do so follow the on-line format checker link that appears in the top navigation bar during the active submission period.|
