    Article
    Open Access
    Earth observation satellite programs are currently facing, for some applications, the need to deliver hourly revisit times, subkilometric spatial resolutions, and near-real-time data access times. These stringent requirements, ...
  • L-band vegetation optical depth seasonal metrics for crop yield assessment 

    Chaparro Danon, David; Piles Guillem, Maria; Vall-Llossera Ferran, Mercedes Magdalena; Camps Carmona, Adriano José; Konings, Alexandra G.; Entekhabi, Dara (2018-06-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Attenuation of surface microwave emission due to the overlying vegetation is proportional to the density of the canopy and to its water content. The vegetation optical depth (VOD) parameter measures this attenuation. VOD ...
