Abstract. Solar-induced chlorophyll fluorescence (SIF) is an indicator of plant photosynthesis which could be detected by satellite. However，some existing algorithms are easily affected by the inaccuracy of satellite data which will causing deviation in the retrieval of SIF. To avoid "outliers" with inaccuracy affecting the retrieval results, a random sample consensus algorithm (RANSAC) was introduced to retrieve SIF in this paper. The results show that the chlorophyll fluorescence value obtained by this method is consistent with the OCO-2 SIF product (R2 = 0.81), and also consistent with the MODIS vegetation index (R2 = 0.87 with NDVI, R2 = 0.85 with EVI). Compared with the existing SIF products (OCO-2 SIF), the SIF retrieved in this paper was better in spatial details and outlier distribution.
