Measurement: Leaf Area Index (LAI)
The AccuPAR LP-80 is an easy-to-use, lightweight, portable, and rugged ceptometer designed for rapidly quantifying light transmitted through the canopy and leaf area index (LAI). All values are measured and calculated on the fly providing immediate user feedback. Onboard storage of values recorded in the field allows for rapid analysis back in the lab.
The Spectral Reflectance Sensors (SRS) are two band radiometers designed to measure the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) or Photochemical Reflectance Index (PRI). The SRS are designed for long term field deployment to continually monitor changes in NDVI or PRI related to canopy growth, senescence, stress, and productivity.
