Specific Project Objectives & Deliverables

In Situ Data:

All sites have a soybean-wheat crop sequence. Typical fields are cultivated with 2 crops (summer and winter) a year. In each of the sites we measured biophysical parameters every 15 days:

  • crop biomass,
  • crop cover,
  • leaf area index,
  • fraction of intercepted radiation,
  • Identification of phenological events,
  • Identification of management practice.

Plans for Next Growing Seasons:

The project is continuing with similar objectives. The main change is greater emphasis in modelling with assimilation of a reduced number of scenes.
