Abstract : The research involved the use of photography and thermal imagery as tools for quickly retrieving relevant information from expansive and complex environs using aerial platforms such as aircraft, satellites, and towers. Volume I summarizes efforts in the disciplines of water resources, planning, botany and ecology, agriculture, and electrical engineering. Remote sensing application studies include thermal and water quality effects in streams and lakes; urban and regional landuse change detection; prediction of landscape (site and cover) parameters; identification of agricultural plant species; detection of plant disease; identification of agricultural soil series; evaluation of soil moisture conditions; and development of remote sensing data processing techniques.
