[DOI: 10.21982/M8WS6P ] LIBERTY(Leaf Incorporating Biochemistry Exhibiting Reflectance and Transmittance Yields)
Yang, Xiguang; Yu, Ying; Dawson, Terence P.
LIBERTY (Leaf Incorporating Biochemistry Exhibiting Reflectance and Transmittance Yields) is a conifer leaf reflectance simulation model based on radiative transfer theory. LIBERTY provides a simulation of reflectance and transmittance of single leaf and quasi-infinite leaf (stacked leaves) at 400-2500nm. The matlab version was compiled based on the publication of Pro. T. P. Dawson on 1998. The inputs include leaf structure and biochemical parameters. The outputs of the model include reflectance of single leaf and quasi-infinite leaf and transmittance. A user manual is provided, which contains the detailed description of input/output parameters. A GUI interface make this program easy to operate.
