Paper Abstract

Some correlation analysis between hyperspectral data and chlorophyll-a, chlorophyll-b and carotenoid contents of leaves in different sites of rice were reported in this paper. Hyperspectral data of late rice in whole growing stage between 1999 and 2000 have been measured by using the ASD FieldSpec UV/VNIR (350-1050nm) Spectroradiometer with resolution of 3nm. The pigment contents of rice leaves, including chlorophyll-a, chlorophyll-b and carotenoid content in different nitrogen levels, have been measured. There are strong correlation among the pigments. The correlation coefficient between chlorophyll and carotenoid reaches the extremely significance level. The chlorophyll-a content of upper leaf was well correlated with the spectral variables. The potential of hyperspectral data for estimating chlorophyll-a of upper leaves was evaluated using univariate correlation and multivariate regression analysis methods with different types of predictors. Results show that the best prediction of chlorophyll-a of upper leaves was obtained with some hyperspectral variables such as SDr, SDb and their integration.
