Studying the tree crops-microclimate relationships by means of radiative models for teledetection. The microclimate conditions around a tree crop (radiation, air temperature and humidity, ….) affect the plant structural development (ex. leaf structure), as well as its physiological (es. photosynthesis) and growth (morphogenesis, growth rates, fruit quality development) responses. In turn, the tree structure itself influences the nearby microclimate (ex. the distribution of radiation, the air mixing within the canopy, the soil water content). The theme of this scholarship is about investigating the interactions among tree crops and their microclimate, by making use of remote sensing, micrometeorological and morphological measurements, as well as using/developing process based models (particularly radiative transfer models). The study will focus on the crops most studied in the framework of the research group (ex. cherry).
The position is in the framework of the Italian National Earth Observation Doctorate.
