LAI-2000 (Beijing Normal University)
Core Experimental Area of Flux Observation Matrix
18 corn samples, 1 orchard sample, 1 artificial white poplar sample
To measure the incoming sky radiation on the canopy firstly. Then the transmission sky radiation are mearued under the canopy for serveral times. The canopy LAI is retrieved by using the gap probability model.
