Paper Abstract

At present, remote photography materials occupy an increasingly significant place in the organization of monitoring of soil cover. With the aim of analyzing the mutual relationship and correlation of remote sensing information about the image tone with the soils' properties as an object of monitoring, various and many-sided investigations are now being conducted to analyze the spectral reflectance property of soil samples in laboratory conditions as well as field investigation of soils' color characteristics. Of greatest interest are the data of field observations, since they most fully reflect the natural status of the moment of photographing the surface. Some scientists who performed research in field conditions draw our attention to the existing micro-heterogeneities of the soils' surface, however no considerable attention is devoted to that. In this connection, the object of our studies was evaluation of the degree of spatial heterogeneity of the open surface of arable chernozem soils from the point of view of the reflectance capacity of that surface.
