|Abstract:||This paper presents the results of estimation of leaf chlorophyll concentration
through model inversion, from hyperspectral imagery of artificially treated
orchard crops. The objectives were to examine model inversion robustness under
changing viewing conditions, and the potential of multi-angle hyperspectral data
to improve accuracy of chlorophyll estimation. The results were compared with
leaf chlorophyll measurements from laboratory analysis and field spectroscopy.
Two state-of-the-art canopy models were compared. The first is a turbid medium
canopy reflectance model (MCRM) and the second is a 3D model (FLIGHT).
Both were linked to the PROSPECT leaf model. A linear regression using a single
band was also performed as a reference. The different techniques were able to
detect nutrient deficiencies that caused stress from the hyperspectral data
obtained from the airborne AHS sensor. However, quantitative chlorophyll
retrieval was found largely dependent on viewing conditions for regression and
the turbid medium model inversion. In contrast, the 3D model was successful for
all observations. It offers a robust technique to extract chlorophyll quantitatively
from airborne hyperspectral data. When multi-angular data were combined, the
results for both the turbid medium and 3D model increased. Final RMSE values
of 5.8 mg cm-2 (MCRM) and 4.7 mg cm-2 (FLIGHT) were obtained for
chlorophyll retrieval on canopy level.|
