Retrieval approaches of vegetation traits from imaging spectroscopy data

Overview of methods for the quantification of bio-geophysical and biochemical vegetation traits

Unit Description

This slide collection focusses on quantification using regression analysis and RTMs. Following a short introduction about radiance regime of vegetation, we provide an overview about retrieval methods of vegetation bio-geophysical and biochemical traits from imaging spectroscopy data. Retrieval methods can be classified into the following four methodological categories: (1) parametric & (2) nonparametric regressions, (3) RTMs, and (4) hybrid methods. Further, emulation and quantification of uncertainties will be briefly discussed in this lecture.
