CSI papers published: Soil directional reflectance

Soil directional (biconical) reflectance in the principal plane with varied illumination angle under dry and saturated conditions
by Tian, Jia and CSI member Philpot, William D. OPTICS EXPRESS, 26 (18):23883-23897; 10.1364/OE.26.023883 SEP 3 2018 (email: philpot@cornell.edu)
The team monitored the change in directional (biconical) spectral reflectance for three soil samples under air dry and saturated conditions in the laboratory for changing illumination angles. The soil samples represent a variety of soil properties and illustrate the changes in the directional and spectral distribution of soil reflectance when the soil is dry or saturated.
