Paper Abstract

The laws of salts' influence on the spectral reflectance of the soils of serozem zone are considered in this work. The forms of regression equilibriums and correlation coefficients' values depend on the season, the type of the soil, the level of salinization, the chemical composition and the properties of salts. To determine the degree of salinization of arable soils under the cotton crops, the values of the total spectral brightness of the system 'soil + plants' obtained from aerophotography and scanner survey, should be used. This method allows to distinguish non-saline and slightly saline soils from solonchaks with confidence level of 0.95 and 0.70, respectively.
