Abstract

This second special issue of the Grape Remote sensing Atmospheric Profile and Evapotranspiration eXperiment (GRAPEX) further advances and expands upon the initial research findings of the first GRAPEX special issue on the measurement and remote sensing of vine water use and stress. This is a highly collaborative and interdisciplinary experiment, which involves USDA-ARS scientists, industry, and university researchers. The large scope of this research has allowed the development of new measurement and remote sensing tools and techniques to quantify vine evapotranspiration, moisture status, and stress, with the ultimate goal of improving irrigation management in California vineyards.
