AbstractWe report the characterization and correction of nonlinear responses of a commercial field portable spectroradiometer intended to be used to monitor vegetation physiology. Calibration of photoresponse allowed the successful correction of spectral data and the modeling of biases in reflectance at different levels of the dynamic range. Finally, the impact of nonlinearities on a spectral estimator of photosynthetic status, the photochemical reflectance index (PRI) is discussed. Significance of the biases proved that, although nonlinearity can potentially affect reflectance along most of the dynamic range of the instrument, experimental uncertainties can limit its impact. Nonlinearity biased PRI by affecting the reference band of the index and suggested unreal changes on plant physiology. Results show that nonlinearity could be a significant problem in field spectroscopy, especially in the case of spectroradiometers integrated in unattended systems to monitor vegetation responses to radiation. An automatic adjustment of integration time to reach only a certain level of the dynamic range may reduce nonlinearity effects, though may not always avoid them. We conclude that linearity characterization is necessary to understand impacts and correct potential biases.
