Hyperspectral and SIF measurements starting at Neustift

Today Karolina and others mounted the WhiteRef loaned from FEM (foreground) and our SIF system (background) to start jointly measuring hyperspectral reflectance and passive (sun-induced) fluorescence at Neustift within the frame of her Marie Sklodowska-Curie project COSIF. These measurements will be accompanied within COS/CO2 eddy covariance flux measurements and active chlorophyll fluorescence by means of a moniPAM.
