Testing a radiation transmission model for stands consisting of individual 3D Scots pine and silver birch trees
Keywords: boreal forest, crown architecture, light transmission, mixed stand, tree structure
Model-based estimation of light transmission showed acceptable precision in stands, which were reconstructed in 3D using basic tree-level forest inventory variables as input. It appears possible to limit the time costs of computation by restricting the number of sky sectors for ray tracing of light in the model.
