A Suite of Models for Producing Synthetic, Small-scale Thermal Imagery of Vegetated Soil Surfaces

Stacy Howington, John Peters, Jerry Ballard, Thomas Berry, Larry Lynch, Chris Kees & Stacy Howington
A high-resolution, computational suite has been constructed to produce synthetic thermal imagery of vegetated soil surfaces. Because a soil’s moisture affects its thermal response, the model suite must include both moisture and energy movement within the soil and plants. Thus, the suite consists of a soil model, a vegetation model, and a ray-casting model. The models run simultaneously on a single, parallel or serial computer and communicate using sockets. The soil model is a three-dimensional,...
