Abstract

Sun-induced chlorophyll fluorescence (Fs) is a promising parameter for remote measuring plant photosynthesis. It has been demonstrated that Fs at cell and leaf level is strongly related to photosynthesis. The transfer of the Fs approach to canopy level remains challenging as the canopy Fs signal is not fully understood yet. Several factors influence the Fs signal and need to be quantified. However, the absence of dedicated imaging spectrometers limits the experimental data for such investigations. We propose an experimental setup allowing spatio-temporal investigations of canopy Fs. A non-imaging spectrometer was installed in a low-flying aircraft. An agricultural area was continuously monitored including the extensive coverage of dedicated fields. Fs was retrieved from spectrometer data using the FLD (Fraunhofer Line Depth) method combined with simulated (MODTRAN-4) at-sensor radiances of a reference surface. We present the methodological framework to derive canopy chlorophyll fluorescence from airborne based non-imaging spectrometer measurements and a quality assessment of the data.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
