Estimating SO2 Stress by Chlorophyll Fluorescence Measurements with an Active System Used in the Remote Sensing Mode

  • Cornelis Kliffen


By measuring the chlorophyll fluorescence induction kinetics and the fluorescence spectrum of an intact leaf or plant the condition and potential activity of the photosynthetic apparatus can be estimated (1, ed. H.K. Lichtenthaler). Solely two parameters namely the chlorophyll fluorescence ratio F685/F730 and the fluorescence life time are reliable to measure by remote sensing (2).
