An algorithm for estimating the optical and geometrical parameters of plant canopies using bidirectional reflectance measurements of scattered solar radiation is described. The algorithm is based on the well-known Newton method. Formulas for calculating the derivatives of the spectral density coefficient with respect to the retrieval parameters by the Monte Carlo method and some results of model calculations for solving the inverse problem are given.
