In Situ Observations

  1. Parameter: Phenological variables
    Data Collection Protocol:

    Since there are two growing seasons, winter and summer, two sampling were conducted, one on 29th March, 2016 and the other on 12th July, 2016, with 92 and 146 crop type plots identified respectively. 

    Frequency: twice a year
  2. Parameter: Biophysical variables
    Data Collection Protocol:

    In March 2016, biophysical variables (LAI, LAIeff, FAPAR and FCOVER) were measured in 24 Elementary Sampling Units (ESUs) (Fig.3) using digital hemispherical photographs (DHP).  Afterwards, the obtained data was processed with the CAN‐EYE software to provide LAI, LAIeff, FAPAR and FCOVER.  In July, 51 ESUs were sampled (Fig.3), using DHP and including measurements with LAI 2200C plant canopy analizer and Accupar LP80 devices.  These devices were used to measure LAIeff: DHP, AccuparLP80-Ceptometer and LAI 2200C, meanwhile LAI was measured by DHP, FAPAR was measured by DHP and AccuparLP80 and FCOVER was estimated by DHP. Figure 4 shows digital hemispheric photographs acquired at Las Tiesas-Barrax site during the field campaign carried out in July, 2016.
