About the FLEX Photosynthesis Study...

This study targetted the linkage between solar-induced chlorophyll fluorescence and photosynthesis in terrestrial vegetation.  A dedicated photosynthesis model based on state-of-the-art existing modules was developed and implemented.  We also developed and tested a prototype algorithm that can derive photosynthesis from FLEX tandem mission measurements.  The Photosynthesis Study was part of the package of parallel study activities needed for assessment of the FLEX candidate mission.
