Abstract : The object of this investigation is to evaluate the utility of the photographs from NASA's North Carolina Test Site 46 for studying slope failure phenomena. Slope failure forms depicted by the photography include both erosional and mass wastage forms. The imagery made available to the investigator includes the following: Ektachrome, Ektachrome infrared, panchromatic, and multi-spectral nine-lens photography. The Ektachrome and Ektachrome infrared was available from each of the five missions conducted in the area of study (Missions 14,23, 34,53, and 65). The multi-spectral nine-lens was available from two missions (14 and 23), and the panchromatic photography was available from a single mission (14).
