Canopy Analysis

The Delta-T Devices canopy analysis range enables non-destructive estimates of Leaf Area Index (LAI) in both forest canopies and crop canopies.

The SunScan system is optimised for the calculation of LAI in low regular canopies, such as most agricultural crops. Where LAI measurements are not possible, in some non-uniform crops, such as vineyards, then SunScan can be used for PAR mapping.

The HemiView system is ideal for tall canopies, typical of forests and woodlands. It can also estimate gap fraction and track the solar trajectory for the site, as well as other solar radiation indices.
