Title(s):Main Title: Sensing of photosynthetic activity and the effects of the environment
Description(s):Abstract: The light use efficiency of photosynthesis dynamically adapts to environmental factors and is one major factor determining crop yield. Optical remote sensing techniques have the potential to detect physiological and biochemical changes in plant ecosystems, and non-invasive detection of changes in photosynthetic energy conversion may be of great potential for managing agricultural production in a future bio-based economy. Here we give an overview on the principles of optical remote sensing in crop systems with a special emphasis on investigating hyperspectral reflectance data and the sun-induced fluorescence signal. Especially suninduced fluorescence as a parameter, which becomes important in remote sensing research may have great potential quantifying the physiological status of the photosynthetic apparatus. Both remote sensing principles were applied during the CEFLES2 campaign in Southern France, where the structural and functional status of several crops was measured on the ground and using state-of-the-art optical remote sensing techniques. Sun-induced fluorescence measurements over a variety of crops showed that additional information can be retrieved also over dense canopies, where classical remote sensing signals often saturate. With a view to the future, we discuss how hyperspectral reflectance and sun-induced fluorescence can quantitatively be related to photosynthetic efficiency and help to measure and manage productivity of natural and agricultural ecosystems.
