[ID: 385] SITES Spectral
PI: Lars Eklundh
SITES Spectral is an infrastructure for collecting spectral data for ecosystem measurements. By fixed and mobile multispectral sensors and cameras seasonal and inter-annual variations in vegetation conditions are captured over small and intermediate areas. The SITES Spectral instrument setup consists of multispectral sensors, phenology cameras and UAV:s. The collected data is relevant to the studies of a number of processes in the ecosystems; for example, productivity, efficiency of use of light and moisture conditions. Through this initiative SITES can provide data for research related to e.g. climate change, carbon and greenhouse gas balances, phenology, general ecology and biodiversity and plant science.

Phenology is monitored at the four Experimental Forests that are staffed. General plant phenology is monitored weekly in the concept of Natures Calendar (www.naturenskalender.se). This monitoring has been ongoing since 2008, as part of the collaboration within the Swedish National Phenology Network (SWE-NPN). Intensive forest phenology is monitored weekly during the growing season on birch, spruce and pine trees, including measurements of bud and leaf/shoot lengths, and also the abundance of flowers, unripe and ripe berries on bilberry and lingon-berry plants. This monitoring has been ongoing since 2006.
