Calculating environmental moisture for per-field discrimination of rice crops

  title={Calculating environmental moisture for per-field discrimination of rice crops},
  author={Tom G. Van Niel and Tim R. McVicar and Hui Fang and S.-T Liang},
The accuracies of rice classifications determined from density slices of broadband moisture indices were compared to results from a standard supervised technique using six reflective Enhanced Thematic Mapper plus (ETM+) bands. Index-based methods resulted in higher accuracies early in the growing season when background moisture differences were at a maximum. Analysis of depth of ETM+ band 5 resulted in the highest accuracy over the growing season (97.74%). This was more accurate than the… CONTINUE READING
