OnSet has introduced a new bracket to mount the company's light sensors in order to calculate Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) values. NDVI is the standard measure of the density of green vegetation in an area.
The NDVI Light Sensor Bracket provides:
· Sensor positioning to provide verification of satellite NDVI measurements.
· Ground-based data when satellites are not available.
· NDVI values at a finer resolution than is possible with satellite NDVI, which is useful for monitoring vegetation in test plots or sites.
The NDVI Light Sensor Bracket
can be configured with Onset's line of weather stations. The systems offer plug-and-play operation, and can be equipped with a range of sensors for measuring air temperature, relative humidity, Photosynthetic Light (PAR), solar radiation, and more.
The NDVI Light Sensor Bracket is priced at $18 and will be available from Onset on July 15, 2009.
