9 - Modeling Leaf Optical Properties: prospect


As seen in Chapter 8, radiative transfer models have advanced our understanding of light interception by plant leaves throughout the history of remote sensing. They describe absorption and scattering, the two main physical processes involved during the interaction of light with matter. The open-source prospect leaf optical properties model (Jacquemoud and Baret, 1990; Lu et al., 2013) has been the most extensively used radiative transfer model over the past 25 years.
