HiWATER: Dataset of vegetation LAI measured by LAI2000 in the middle reaches of the Heihe River Basin

This dataset is the LAI observation in the artificial oasis experimental region of the middle stream of the Heihe River Basin. The observation period is from 24 May to 20 September 2012 (UTC+8).

Measurement instruments:

LAI-2000 (Beijing Normal University)

Measurement positions:

Core Experimental Area of Flux Observation Matrix

18 corn samples, 1 orchard sample, 1 artificial white poplar sample

Measurement methods:

To measure the incoming sky radiation on the canopy firstly. Then the transmission sky radiation are mearued under the canopy for serveral times. The canopy LAI is retrieved by using the gap probability model.
