Abstract : Canopy structure is of considerable interest in both military and civil science. The topic has strong implications with reference to crop and forest yields, ecosystem structures and functions, and surface effects on atmospheric processes. Military interests in canopy structure are generally associated with munitions effects, aerosol dispersion, target detection, and (conversely to detection) camouflage, concealment, and deception. Canopy structure relates to these military phenomena or activities through direct shielding or through its effects on rates of transport and diffusion of atmospheric materials or its interactions with electromagnetic radiation.
