Spectroscopic Analysis of Canopy Nitrogen and Nitrogen Isotopes in Managed Pastures and Hay Land

Improving watershed nutrient budgets, ecosystem models, and our understanding of the impact of land-use management on ecosystem functioning depends on the development of remote sensing methods that can predict aspects of the nitrogen (N) cycle. This is particularly true for temperate managed grasslands, which constitute a large portion of agricultural land and, at times, export a significant amount of N to aquatic systems and the atmosphere. Although foliar N is often remotely sensed, we… CONTINUE READING
