Abstract : Aerial photography has broad applicability to a variety of fields. Its primary advantages are the synoptic overview and its cost effectiveness. This paper discusses how aerial photographs may be analyzed to develop information on debris patterns and size. This analysis can produce good estimates of the areal distribution of debris and estimates of debris size. This technique has potential to reduce the cost of manpower intensive ground surveys and allow selection of survey areas based on high debris concentrations. (Author)
