Example #2  Is the football field artificial turf?

Using Images part A: 

Although the image is very pixelated, the arrow points to the University of Toledo Football Stadium. The field (arrow) is black. Since vegetation returns high reflectance in band 4, colored red in this image, the field has artificial turf. The graph, available in Multispec, shows the relative reflectance in each band. Note the low reflectance in band 4 and the high reflectance in band 1 and 5, which indicate a lack of moisture and vegetation.

There is low reflectance in channel 4 (red color).
