Mapping leaf area index in a mixed temperate forest using Fenix airborne hyperspectral data and Gaussian processes regression

Last update on Nov. 4, 2020.

Machine learning algorithms, in particular, kernel-based machine learning methods such as Gaussian processes regression (GPR) have shown to be promising alternatives to traditional empirical methods for retrieving vegetation parameters from remotely sensed data. However, the performance of GPR in predicting forest biophysical parameters has hardly been examined using full-spectrum airborne hyperspectral data. The main objective ...

Megacity and local contributions to regional air pollution: an aircraft case study over London

Last update on Nov. 4, 2020.

In July 2017 three research flights circumnavigating the megacity of London were conducted as a part of the STANCO training school for students and early career researchers organised by EUFAR (European Facility for Airborne Research). Measurements were made from the UK's Facility for Airborne Atmospheric Measurements (FAAM) BAe-146-301 atmospheric research aircraft with the aim ...

EUFAR Handbook on Airborne Measurements for Environmental Research: Methods & Instruments

Last update on Nov. 23, 2020.

EUFAR handbook is the first comprehensive review of airborne measurement principles covers all atmospheric components and surface parameters. It describes the common techniques to characterise aerosol particles and cloud/precipitation elements, while also explaining radiation quantities and pertinent hyperspectral and active remote sensing measurement techniques along the way. As a result, the major principles of ...
