Why the total of the two different category settings rather than the mean? With the sum then subtracted I get -5. When I calculate the mean of both categories then subtract, I get -1
If i’m understanding correctly, I believe you want to use the mean of both categories, which is what the instructions for the leaf offset say.
Thank you! You answered my question.
Hey peet hope this gets to u. So if taking 4-6 reads on plant then on non plant areas. My plant matter temps is 80 f and my non plant stuff (walls, wood blocks ,plastic pots ) is 75f that means my offset is +5f Does this mean my leaf surface temp is also +5f or is the offset and leaf surface temp an opposite type calculation where meaning it’s really -5f Cuz I always assumed using led lights that leaf surface temps usually less then ambient due to less radiant heat with less And also when I take leaf surface temp it’s cooler then ambient imo . So in a nut shell is pulse offset temp of -5f a leaf surface temp of -5f or +5f
Hi Justin, your leaf temperature offset would be +5. It depends on a lot of factors, perhaps your LED lights have a significant amount of infrared in their spectrum?
This is possibly the reason, seems like you have a fair bit of IR which would increase surface temps.
