Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This study focuses on the evaluation of 4 remote sensing techniques to estimate the cover fraction of cereal crop residues (i.e., wheat and corn) from multispectral and hyperspectral measurements. These are the Soil Adjusted Corn Residue Index (SACRI), the Crop Residue Index Multiband (CRIM), the Normalized Difference Index (NDI) and the spectral mixture analysis technique (SMA). Field campaigns that were carried out by the FLOODGEN project in Sainte-Angèle-de-Monnoir, Québec, and in Pays-de-Caux located in the Normandy region of France, allowed to gather digital photographs, spectra and other measurements to determine the actual ground cover fraction. Discussion of the results
