- ... Typically, 50‐70% of the total annual precipitation in New Mexico can be produced by convective thunderstorms during the period June through September. These thunderstorms are accompanied by intense lightning and characteristically produce heavy, localized rainfall resulting in high spatial variation in precipitation inputs. During other months precipitation over the entire Sevilleta (10⁵ ha) ofte ...

- ... Using geometric shadow and linear mixture models we develop and evaluate an algorithm to infer several important structural parameters of stands of black spruce (Picea mariana), the most common boreal forest dominant. We show, first, that stand reflectances for this species can be represented as linear combinations of the reflectances of more elemental radiometric components: sunlit crowns, sunlit ...
