    • Estimation of vegetation structure parameters from SMAP radar intensity observations 

      Jagdhuber, Thomas; Montzka, Carsten; López Martínez, Carlos; Baur, Martin J.; Link, Moritz; Piles de la Fuente, María Pilar; Das, Narendra Narayan; Jonard, François (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2021-01-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      In this article, we present a multipolarimetric estimation approach for two model-based vegetation structure parameters (shape A and orientation distribution ψ of the main canopy elements). The approach is based on a reduced ...
    • Sensitivity of L-band vegetation optical depth to carbon stocks in tropical forests: a comparison to higher frequencies and optical indices 

      Chaparro Danon, David; Duveiller, Grégory; Piles de la Fuente, María Pilar; Cescatti, Alessandro; Vall-Llossera Ferran, Mercedes Magdalena; Camps Carmona, Adriano José; Entekhabi, Dara (2019-10-01)
