SCOPE (Soil-Canopy-Observation of Photosynthesis and the Energy balance) is an integrated model for soil-canopy spectral radiance observations, photosynthesis, and energy balance of the vegetated land surface. The aim of SCOPE is to link top of canopy (TOC) observations of radiance with land surface processes. Radiance includes the thermal and the optical parts, with a module dedicated to chlorophyll fluorescence. Land surface processes include photosynthesis, net radiation, sensible and latent heat flux, and soil heat flux. The model is a 1-D (single-dimensional) vertical model, which means that horizontal variations in surface characteristics are ignored. In the vertical direction, leaf layers are distinguished.
