Develop robust remote sensing approaches with refinements to the Two-Source Energy Balance (TSEB) model for estimating evapotranspiration (ET), crop transpiration (T) and crop stress at different spatial and temporal scales, from proximal sensing to small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS) and satellite remote sensing platforms. Evaluate these approaches using data from field experiments in the United States and Spain primarily focused on perennial crops, namely vineyards, and fruit and nut trees (orchards) having highly structured and complex canopy architecture.
Share with Cooperator data from the Grape Remote sensing Atmospheric Profile & Evapotranspiration eXperiment (GRAPEX) and Tree crop Remote sensing of Evapotranspiration eXperiment (T-REX) projects for developing robust approaches with refinements to the Two-Source Energy Balance (TSEB) model for estimating surface energy balance, ET and component soil evaporation (E) and plant transpiration (T) at different scales, from proximal sensing, to UAV and satellite remote sensing platforms. Additionally apply these approaches using data from field experiments conducted in Spain.
