Abstract

Models of the nadir reflectivity as a function of the fractional cover by plants or plant debris are presented and are applied to assessing the Negev vs Sinai differences and the sharp recovery (darkening) of the surface in a Sinai enclosure where anthropogenic pressures were stopped in 1974 by fencing off the area.
