Model: CanSPART

Phase: RAMI IV

The Canopy Semi-analytic Pgap And Radiative Transfer (CanSPART) model of gap probability (Pgap) based on a simple but flexible geometric vegetation canopy structure, coupled to a one-dimensional radiative transfer scheme, to account for the effects of crown structure and trunks on vertically resolved canopy radiation fluxes.
