LARS Tech Report Number



During the summer of 1971 the Laboratory for Applications of Remote Sensing (LARS) participated in an experiment to detect disease in corn caused by southern corn leaf blight. An aircraft was used to measure in several spectral intervals between 0.46 and 2.60 micrometers the solar radiation reflected by the earth's surface. The analysis of data gathered during the 1971 Corn Blight Watch Experiment revealed a number of unexpected features. One of particular interest was the appearance of bright and dark sides along the flightline of the aircraft.
