Abstract

Chandrasekhar's method of solution is applied to the one-angle photon transport equation in a 1-D finite plant canopy where all leaves are oriented in the same direction. An analytical expression for the reflected intensity in terms of the reflected and transmitted intensities for the canopy with vacuum boundary conditions is obtained and numerically evaluated.
