Paper Abstract

Vegetation structure significantly impacts the degree of anisotropy of the scattered radiation field. The proper analysis of multiangular data, such as those provided by the Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR) instrument on board Terra, could thus in principle yield statistical information on the structure of the observed environment. Preliminary investigation in this direction suggests that useful information on the heterogeneity of the vegetation can be retrieved at the subpixel scale.
