Estimating canopy water content from spectroscopy

  title={Estimating canopy water content from spectroscopy},
  author={Susan L. Ustin and David Ria{\~n}o and E. Raymond Hunt},
Canopy water content is a dynamic quantity that depends on the balance between water losses from transpiration and water uptake from the soil. Absorption of shortwave radiation by water is determined by various frequencies that match overtones of fundamental bending and stretching molecular transitions. Leaf water potential and relative water content are important variables for determining water deficit and drought effects; however, these variables may only be indirectly estimated from leaf and… CONTINUE READING
