摘要
The foliage Clumping Index (CI) is an important vegetation structure parameter that allows for the accurate separation of sunlit and shaded leaves in a canopy. The CI and its seasonality are critical for global Leaf Area Index (LAI) estimating and ecological modelling. However, the cover of snow tends to reduce the reflectance anisotropy of the vegetation canopy and thus probably influences CI estimates. In this paper, we investigate the influence of snow on the magnitude and seasonal variation of the CI retrieved from Moderate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function (BRDF) products based on field-measured CI and statistics from the global MODIS CI product. We find that the backup algorithm can effectively correct abnormally large CI values and obtain more reasonable CI retrievals than the main algorithm without any constraints in snow-covered areas. Validation indicates that the time-series CI product shows the potential in investigating the trajectories of the clumping effect in snow seasons. For evergreen forests, the clumping effect is relatively stable throughout the year; however, for deciduous vegetation types, CI values tend to display significant seasonal variations. This study suggests that the latest version of the global MODIS CI product, in which the backup algorithm is used to process the snow-covered pixels, has improved accuracy for CI retrievals in snow-covered areas and thus is probably more suitable as the input parameter for ecological and meteorological models.
