In what ways does Surface Reflectance pre-processing provide a superior product for PlanetScope imagery applications?

Typically, surface reflectance is required for more quantitative analysis and modeling of geophysical (albedo) and biophysical (LAI, FAPAR) parameters, or to minimize uncertainties in quantifying landscape change. Surface reflectance is not necessarily required for mapping land cover, but it may yield improved estimations of changes in vegetation condition (e.g. leaf moisture content, vegetation stress).
