Paper Abstract

The Relationships between rape biomass and hyperspectral vegetation indices are investigated in this paper. The data for this study comes from field hyperspectral reflectance measurements of rape during 2002-2003 growing period. Reflectance was measured in discrete narrow bands between 350 and 2500 nm. Observed rape biomass included wet biomass (WBM including leaf wet biomass-LWBM, stem wet biomass-SWBM, fruit wet biomass-FWBM), and dry biomass(DBM: including leaf dry biomass-LDBM, stem dry biomass, fruit dry biomass-FDBM). Narrow band normalized difference vegetation index (NBNDVI) and narrow band ratio vegetation index (NBRVI)involving all possible two-band combinations of discrete channels was tested. Special narrow band lambda (λ1) versus lambda (λ2) plots of R2 values illustrate the most effective wavelength combinations (λ1 and λ2) and band-width (Δλ1 and Δλ2) for predicting rape biomass at different development stage. A strong relationship with rape biomass is located in red-edge, the longer portion of red, moisture-sensitive NIR, longer portion of the blue band, the intermediate portion of SWIR, and the longer portion of SWIR.
