Paper Abstract

Learning the shielding effect of tree crowns with various structures on ultraviolet-B (UV-B) transmission is of great significance, such as for reducing its damage on human. The cutting-edge remote sensing technique of mobile laser scanning (MLS) is a potential option for tree structure representation. This work was dedicated to investigating the correlation between the shielding efficiency of UV-B and tree crown structural parameters. Positive correlations were achieved between the shielding efficiency of UV-B and the canopy structural parameters, and this is of implications for selecting appropriate tree species for such as livable environment construction.
