Scientists Probe Water Inside Leaves via Satellite
Improving satellite-based studies of vegetation optical depth, a critical ecosystem indicator.
Sensors on board satellites are able to detect a host of environmental metrics, from Arctic sea ice melt to the reproductive patterns of mule deer to logging and land clearing. One satellite-based measurement, called vegetation optical depth, is often used to track how plant life is responding to changes in climate....more
