Krapivin, VF, Shutko, AM, Chukhlantsev, AA, Golovachev, SP, Phillips, GW (2006). GIMS-based method for vegetation microwave monitoring. ENVIRONMENTAL MODELLING & SOFTWARE, 21(3), 330-345.

The objective of this paper is threefold: (1) To present a working methodology for the combined use of modeling technology and microwave remote-sensing measurements in the assessment of attenuation of electromagnetic waves by the vegetation cover; (2) To illustrate this methodology with computer calculations of the attenuation for various soil-plant formations; (3) To give a perspective of the developed methodology applied to the study of global environmental change, including the radiative forcing problem.
