How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Abstract. Despite recent advances in the development of detailed plant radiative transfer models, the large-scale canopy models generally still rely on simplified one-dimensional (1D) radiation models based on assumptions of horizontal homogeneity, including dynamic ecosystem models, crop models, and global circulation models. In an attempt to inco...
The solar radiation intercepted by plant canopies is a fundamental driver of biophysical processes on Earth's, and thus quantifying such interception is a critical part of understanding and predicting a wide range of processes occurring at the land-atmosphere interface. For practical purposes, fluxes of intercepted radiation are usually estimated u...
Crop rotations, organic nutrient amendments, reduced tillage practices, and integration of cover crops are practices that have the potential to increase the sustainability of crop production, yet they also impact nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions. Agricultural soil management has been estimated to contribute 79% of the total N2O emissions in the U.S.,...
