Laboratory Imaging Spectroscopy of Soil Profiles.

A project in co-operation with the Soil Science department at TU Munich in Weihenstephan (Dr. Markus Steffens, now FIBL Switzerland).

Project Contents

In this project, we investigate the potentials of laboratory imaging spectroscopy in the VIS/NIR and SWIR range for soil profiles.

The focus is on

  • the spatial distribution of soil constituents at sub-millimeter scale,
  • the delineation of soil horizons and inclusions, and
  • geostatistic analyses of spatial heterogeneity
