lai

calculates the lead area index (LAI)

calculates the lead area index (LAI)

Usage
lai(lad_profile, min = 1, max = 100)
Arguments
lad_profile

output of the lad.profile function

min

mix canopy height

max

max canopy height

Note

The use of min and max arguments allowed the estimation of the LAI for different vertical strata

Examples
# NOT RUN {
# Get the example laz file
normlas.file = system.file("extdata", "lidar_example.laz", package="leafR")

# Calculate LAD from voxelization
VOXELS_LAD = lad.voxels(normlas.file,
                        grain.size = 2)

# Calculate the LAD profile
lad_profile = lad.profile(VOXELS_LAD)

lidar.lai = lai(lad_profile); lidar.lai
understory.lai = lai(lad_profile, min = 1, max = 5); understory.lai

# relative LAD PROFILE
relative.lad_profile = lad.profile(VOXELS_LAD, relative = TRUE)

#understory relative LAI (% of total LAI)
relative.understory.lai = lai(relative.lad_profile, min = 1, max = 5); relative.understory.lai

# }
