Canopy water indices

This index is a reflectance measurement that is sensitive to changes in water content of plant canopies. The NDII uses a  Some of these CWC indices are derived from indices developed at the leaf scale, such as the Water Index proposed by Peñuelas et al. (1997) being a modification

However, EVI corrects for some atmospheric conditions and canopy background   wheat canopies grown under different levels of water supply and plant density and derived a simple canopy reflectance index that is greatly independent of  The Normalized Difference Moisture (Water) Index (NDMI or NDWI) is a water content and the spongy mesophyll structure in vegetation canopies, while the 

The amount of foliage in the plant canopy is one of the basic ecological characteristics commonly quantified by leaf area index (LAI). The importance of LAI in both canopy structure and functions are then presented. LAI is one of the main driving forces of net primary production, water and nutrient use, and carbon balance.

The Soil Water Index quantifies the moisture condition at various depths in the soil. It is mainly driven by the precipitation via the process of infiltration. The canopy water content VIs provide a measure of the amount of water contained in the foliage canopy. Water content is an important quantity of vegetation because higher water content indicates healthier vegetation that is likely to grow faster and be more fire-resistant. Canopy water content VIs use reflectance measurements in the near-infrared and shortwave infrared regions to take advantage of known absorption features of water and the penetration depth of light in the near-infrared Canopy water content vegetation indices provide a way to gauge canopy water content based on reflectance spectra measured by a field portable spectroradiometer such as the SR-6500, PSR+, RS-5400 and RS-3500. Canopy temperature was highlycorrelated with leaf water potential (R^2= 0.895). To avoid potential bias, the lowest observation fromthe non-stressed treatment was chosen as the baseline for DANS and IDANS indices. Canopy Temperature-Based Water Stress Indices: Potential and Limitations Water stress in plant is associated with reduced availability of soil moisture under higher ambient temperature and wider vapour pressure deficit for a considerable period of time.

As a result, NDWI is sensi- tive to changes in liquid water content of vegetation canopies. Atmospheric aerosol  indices and the LST were proposed for determining canopy water status. The LST is a good indicator of energy partitioning at the sur- face. In the case of drought

Normalized Difference Water Indices (NDWI) using SWIR (1640 nm) or SWIR ( 2130 nm), namely canopy can be shown in the soil effect from soil background. These two bands sense different depths over the vegetation canopies. Normalized Difference Water Index (NDWI), is used to differentiate water from the dry land  In this study, we investigated the applicability of hyperspectral water-sensitive indices from canopy spectra for estimating canopy EWT (CEWT) and GWC.
