Leaf area index (LAI) is a key biophysical parameter used to determine foliage cover and crop growth in environmental studies in order to assess crop yield.  ...  Frequently, plant canopy analyzers (LAI-2000) and digital cameras for hemispherical photography (DHP) are used for indirect effective plant area index (PAI e f f ) estimates.  ...  The authors would like to thank the Spanish rice farmers for allowing collecting in situ data within their fields.  ...

This paper presents and evaluates multitemporal LAI estimates derived from Sentinel-2A data on rice cultivated area identified using time series of Sentinel-1A images over the main European rice districts  ...  Defined as half of the total green leaf area per unit ground surface area [2], LAI plays a key role in land surface models [3] and can be used to address various agricultural issues, such as rice crop  ...  Acknowledgments: The research leading to these results was conducted within the ERMES FP7 project  ...
