Photogrammetric Engineering and Remote Sensing 52(12): 1891-1897


Spectroradiometric canopy light reflectance measurements of 4 succulent and 8 nonsucculent rangeland plant species differing in canopy architecture were made in the visible (0.55- and 0.65- micro m), near IR (0.85- micro m), and mid-IR (1.65- and 2.20- micro m) spectral regions to determine if succulents could be distinguished from nonsucculents. Reflectance measurements were made in both June and Sep. 1984.
