Questions: Can the ratio of nitrogen to phosphorus (N:P ratio) be predicted at canopy level using imaging spectroscopy (IS) and light detection and ranging (LiDAR) remote sensing data? How do temporal variation and difference in spatial resolution of these data sources affect prediction accuracy of the canopy N:P ratio?
