Abstract:

The objective of this catalog was to document the visible near- infrared reflectance spectra 400-2500nm of vegetation, soils, rocks, and man- made materials, and to provide information about their unique physical and chemical properties. Spectra were taken of representative samples of a particular plant species or soil type and selected conditions so that a specific feature could be evaluated. Seasonal differences in vegetation spectra were measured for tree, shrub, herbaceous, and grass species. Soils having different textures and moisture potentials were measured. These spectra summarize results of on going research in different environments, although many of the field spectra were taken in semiarid and arid environments.
