Visiting Scholar Dr. Kai Yan from Beijing Normal University and Mr. Baodong Xu from the Institute of Remote Sensing and Digital Earth, Beijing, published three articles on the physics and implementation of LAI/FPAR algorithm for the NASA’s Suomi VIIRS sensor and an evaluation of the derived product. The articles are in collaboration with PhD students Taejin Park and Chi Chen in Professor Ranga Myneni’s research group.
