Processing Averaged Yes
Processing Information Details each signature = average of ca. 5 bouquet measurements, which in turn = average of ca. 3 replicate measurements. Spectral signature of each bouquet was unmixed: removal of black table contribution to measurement.
Processing Interpolated No
Processing Resampled No
Sample Platform handheld
Target Status Fresh, Green
Target Type Canopy
Theme Ecology, Biochemistry
