WATER: Dataset of spectral reflectance observations in the Linze grassland foci experimental area Chinese Version

The dataset of spectral reflectance observations was obtained in the Linze grassland foci experimental area. Spectral reflectance of the cement floor, reed, the saline field, alfalfa, barley and the pool in the reed plot A, the saline plot B, the alfalfa plot D and the barley plot E were measured by ASD and the reference board (20% and 40%).
