Mowing Experiment Exotech Data (FIFE)

Light radiation striking a vegetative canopy interacts with individual phyto-elements (i.e., leaves, stems, branches) and the underlying substrate. The interaction depends on light quality, radiative form (direct or diffuse), illumination incidence angle, vegetative component optical properties and canopy architecture. Radiation is reflected, transmitted or absorbed. Mowing, grazing, and fertilization can affect the canopy architecture or optical properties of vegetation, thus changing the canopy reflectance. This study examined the response of spectral reflectance characteristics (using an...
