Fluorescence is a near-infrared light that is emitted from the core of a plant’s photosynthetic machinery, after absorption of sunlight by plant chlorophyll. It reflects the efficiency of photosynthesis and the health of vegetation. The new Hyplant airborne instrument has demonstrated that plant fluorescence can be imaged from an aircraft, potentially paving the way for a new ESA satellite mission called FLEX.
