ARE TWO PHOTOGRAPHIC INFRARED SENSORS REQUIRED?

The possible redundancy of photographic infrared (0.70-1.00 microns) sensors for monitoring vegetation and plant stresses was investigated using previously published data and the analysis of in situ narrow bandpass spectral data from experimental grass plots. Results of the analysis showed that a 0.76-0.90 microns photographic infrared sensor would combine excellent general vegetational utility with the ability to discriminate photographic infrared plateau-rounding stress conditions. A 0.76-0.90 microns sensor is therefore suggested for Landsat-D. /Author/
