Abstract : The report presents experience in the study of the spectral reflectivity of some landscape elements (primarily vegetation and soils) which are ground water indicators and describes the use of these data for the hydrogeological interpretation of aerial photographs. The studies were made during 1958-1960 in two geographical zones of the Soviet Union: desert (Turkmenia) and semi-desert (Caspian Lowland). The method for interpreting ground water described in this paper was checked by making similar studies in the forest zone of the northwestern regions of the USSR. The objects for spectral photometric studies in each geographical zone were those types of vegetation and soils which form the basic appearance of the landscape. (Author)
