The purpose of this paper is to present a method for using remote measurements to estimate vegetation fraction, surface energy fluxes and the root zone and soil surface water contents for partial vegetation canopies. The primary tools are a boundary layer model with vegetation and substrate components and two image products: the variation of surface radiometric temperature vs. normalized differenc ...
