Abstract
<p>This software package contains a Matlab demonstration implementation of an algorithm to compute the 3D interaction of solar radiation with vegetation canopies. The algorithm splits the canopy in the horizontal plane into one clear region and one or more vegetated regions, and the two-stream equations are used for each, but with additional terms representing lateral exchange of radiation between regions that are proportional to the area of the interface between them. The resulting coupled set of ordinary differential equations is solved using the matrix-exponential method. The algorithm has potential application to weather and climate modelling. The approach w...
