Thermal infrared spatial method of diagnosing plant states

Medical and Biological Measurements


A contactless spectrometer operating in the range 8–14 μm has been developed for diagnosing plant states. The method has been tested on woody plants in a region where there are low-contrast geochemical anomalies involving elevated concentrations of heavy metals in the soil (zinc, lead, molybdenum, nickel, niobium, and tin). The spectral features of plant stress have been identified, which are related to various forms of spectrum for normal and stressed plants.
