Comparison of adaxial and abaxial spectral reflectance of Fagus orientalis Lipsky and Carpinus betulu using field spectroradiometer and spectral indices


Abbasi, M; Darvishsefat, A A; Schaepman, M E (2010). Comparison of adaxial and abaxial spectral reflectance of Fagus orientalis Lipsky and Carpinus betulu using field spectroradiometer and spectral indices. Iranian Journal of Forest, 2(3):253-261.

Abstract

The spectral reflectance of tree crown can be different from spectral reflectance of its leaves because of diverse leaf and branch angles as well as internal space of tree crown. For these reasons it is necessary to study spectral reflectance of both adaxial and abaxial surfaces of the leaves. Such information is necessity for modeling the reflectance of tree crown and forest stands. The main objective of this study was to obtain and study the spectral reflectance of both adaxial and abaxial leaves of beech and hornbeam in natural condition and to investigate their spectral differences using indices sensitive to chlorophyll, chlorophyll to carotenoid ratio and photosynthetic pigments. Field spectroradiometric measurements were performed using a portable spectroradiometer (ASD FieldSpec) in Kheyrud forest. A total of 52 trees were sampled and 312 spectra were recorded and analyzed. Spectral measurements cover the wavelength range between 350 – 2500 nm. The results of the spectral reflectance analysis of these two species showed that the abaxial spectral reflectance from 350 to 2500 nm was higher than the adaxial one for hornbeam species. However, for beech species in the visible region and far infrared region, the abaxial spectral reflectance was higher whereas in the near infrared it was lower than the adaxial one. For more detailed investigation of spectral reflectance difference for these two species, spectral indices sensitive to chlorophyll and carotenoid were calculated and statistically analyzed for both surfaces. The value of adaxial NDI index was found to be higher than abaxial for both species. In contrast, the values of adaxial SIPI and PRI indices were lower than abaxial. The differences significant (?= 0.01, p< 0.0001) for both species.

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.
