AbstractIn this paper, a black soil (BS) approach is incorporated into the FLAIR model to enhance the description of the spectrally dependant multiple scattered radiation field of a forest canopy. Such advances to radiative transfer modelling is required to better exploit the potential of hyperspectral remote sensing for monitoring canopy biochemical indicators, such as chlorophyll concentration and equivalent water content. Simulations, based on a mature black spruce forest model, establish that this approach is well suited to the FLAIR model. It is also demonstrated that that the multiple scattering problem can be parameterized by a limited number of architectural parameters and the leaf scattering coefficient.
