Investigations on the 1.7 micron residual absorption feature in the vegetation reflection spectrum
The detection and interpretation of the weak absorption features associated with the biochemical components of vegetation is of great potential interest in a variety of applications ranging from classification to global change studies. This study has established that the 1.7 micron absorption residual shows systematic variation with respect to the vegetation type. This result has been found independently on both AVIRIS spectra and from laboratory reflectance spectra of optically thick stacks of leaves and needles. The explanation is not clear and further chemical analyses are required.
