Abstract

The near infrared analysis (NIRA) approach was studied to examine its capability for predicting spectral feature soil properties from the reflectance curves in the near infrared (NIR) region (1-2.5 μm) of arid and semiarid soils. High-resolution diffuse reflectance spectra (3113 spectral points) in the NIR region were recorded for 91 soil samples from Israel. It was concluded that NIRA is a promising method for rapid and nonrestrictive analysis of soil materials, and further study of the synergism between NIRA and soil materials is recommended. -from Authors
