A wide variety of tools has been designed to extract information from remote sensing data on the nature and structure of terrestrial ecosystems. The use of spectral indices, and the design and inversion of physically-based models of the interaction between the radiation field and the surface are two approaches described in some detail. The advantages and disadvantages of these approaches are discussed and the importance of combined field and laboratory measurement campaigns is stressed.
