- This article presents a database of wheat motion in wind based on videogrammetric measurements of plant motion coupled with high-resolution anemometry. The database is described along with a summary of the experiments performed. Results are then derived from the database to quantify key processes relevant to radar imaging of vegetation. The database provides a significant resource for studies requiring quantitative data on the motion of vegetation in wind, and can be applied to several applications in addition to radar imaging.
