Python Library for simulating physiological processes in plants

Project description

Python Library for simulating physiological processes in plants. The aim of this project is to implement the energy balance model developed in Berni et al. 2009 that allows to estimate canopy conductance from a combination of canopy temperature and basic micro-metheorological observations.

The different components of the model can also be used in the simulation and estimation of physical processes such as aerodynamic modeling, calculation of solar radiation, etc.
