A small, portable, battery-powered field reflectometer,
which utilized an integrating sphere, was developed for
measuring reflectance from soils and intact leaves. Its
light source was a flashlight bulb; its wavelength selection
within the range of 0.4µ to 1.1µ was achieved
with interference filters. Comparison with laboratory
instruments was favorable.
