A review of the application of BRDF models to infer land cover parameters at regional and global scales

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This paper will discuss current techniques for inferring estimates of albedo and land surface biophysical parameters. Limitations of these approaches, in the context of global climate modelling, will be presented. The role of Bi-directional Reflectance Distribution Function (BRDF) models in deriving estimates of these quantities will be investigated. This will be followed by a discussion of the future prospects of deriving estimates of land surface parameters from space using BRDF models
