Influences of Leaf Area Index and Albedo on Estimating Energy Fluxes with HOLAPS Framework

The High resOlution Land Atmosphere surface Parameters from Space (HOLAPS) programme provides a modeling system to maximize the use of satellite-based products and ensure internally consistent estimation of surface water and energy fluxes. Leaf area …

Downscaling SMAP Soil Moisture Estimation with Gradient Boosting Decision Tree Regression over the Tibetan Plateau

The Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) satellite can no longer directly deliver high-resolution (9 km) soil moisture products with the failure of the onboard L-band radar. Thus, an appropriate replacement sensor and new algorithms are urgently …

Preliminary assessment of 20-m surface albedo retrievals from sentinel-2A surface reflectance and MODIS/VIIRS surface anisotropy measures

Satellite-based retrievals of land surface albedo at 20-m resolution are generated by coupling the surface reflectances from the recently launched Sentinel-2A satellite with surface anisotropy information (as described by Bidirectional Reflectance …

Mapping Paddy Rice Area and Yields Over Thai Binh Province in Viet Nam From MODIS, Landsat, and ALOS-2/PALSAR-2

This study uses multiple satellite datasets to map paddy rice areas and yields for the Thai Binh Province, Viet Nam, over the summer growing season of 2015. The major datasets used are: first, surface reflectance and vegetation indices (VI) by fusing …

Influence of Heterogeneous Landscapes on Computed Green-up Dates Based on Daily AVHRR NDVI Observations

The main objective of the current paper is to evaluate and explain differences between computed green-up dates of vegetated land surface derived from satellite observations and budburst dates from ground observational networks. Landscapes dominated …
