Abstract : The purpose of this contract is to investigate remote sensing methods for monitoring coastal areas. The effort is divided into three tasks, involving research on: Compositional mapping of beaches and river systems; multispectral radar imaging for coastal mapping; and enhancement of ocean bottom features with passive multispectral scanners. During the first quarter, significant progress was made on tasks 1 and 3, but work on task 2 has just begun, with nothing reportable as yet.
