Civil Engineering Applications of Remote Sensing London Docklands—A Case Study in Applied GIS
This paper addresses the role of remote sensing and Geographic Information System (GIS) technology in transforming the London Docklands from a run-down area of urban decline to a spectacular...

A Perfect Base for a GIS: The Digital Orthophoto
A digital orthophoto is a rectified image with no relief displacement or radial distortion inherent in an aerial photo. One advantage of a digital orthophotography is that it can be used...

Monitoring Seagrass Distribution and Abundance Patterns

Thurston Regional Wetland Mapping Methodology

Oceanographic Earth Observations by Space Shuttle Astronauts
Thirty years of manned space flights have produced over 100,000 photographs of the Earth. Many of these photographs describe various coastal processes and oceanographic phenomena at a...

An Update to CoastWatch—NOAA's New Capability for the Coastal Ocean
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) CoastWatch project was initiated in August 1988 in response to a red tide event off the North Carolina coast....

Satellite Mapped Imagery for CoastWatch
The goal of CoastWatch, an activity within the new Coastal Ocean Program of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), is to provide data and products for near real-time...

Roadside Associated Disturbance on Coastal Dunes
Park Road 100 extends through the developed southernmost 8 km of South Padre Island and continues northward for 11.5 km through the Secondary Dunes and Vegetated Flats (SDVF) zone of the...

Bedload Transport Measurement by Imaging of Tracers
A dyed-sand tracer technique is developed for investigation of bedload under laboratory oscillatory flows. Imaging of the tracer with high speed photography allows the creation of time...

Observation of Suspended Sediments in Mobile Bay, Alabama from Satellite
As part of a comprehensive geologic study of coastal Alabama and Mississippi, the U.S. Geological Survey is investigating coastal sediment transport in Mobile Bay and the adjacent shelf....

Fine Grain Sediment Transport and Deposition in the Atchafalaya and Chenier Plain Sedimentary System
The most extensive land loss and land accretion processes in the U.S. are occuring in the Mississippi River Delta Plain. Some 40 square miles of valuable marshlands are lost annually....

Mapping Barrier Island Changes in Louisiana: Techniques, Accuracy, and Results
Changes in shoreline position along Louisiana's rapidly changing barrier coastline were compiled using cartographic data sources and aerial photography from 1855 to 1989. An interactive...

Keys to High-Accuracy Mapping of Shoreline Changes
For many years it has been difficult to overlay maps and aerial photographs with different scales and publication dates using conventional techniques. Large processing errors also made...

Computer Simulation Modeling of Ebb-Tidal Deltas
An ebb-tidal delta simulation model has been developed incorporating gross features of delta and channel morphologies which can be measured from vertical aerial photographs. Delta and...

Coastal Impacts of Hurricane Hugo
During the early morning hours of 22 September 1989, Hurricane Hugo made landfall on the South Carolina Coast. Hugo was a Category 4 hurricane at time of landfall with estimated maximum...

Satellite Imagery Refines PMF Determination
This paper focuses on electromagnetic energy sensors, and describes how they are being used to determine the Probable Maximum Flood (PMF) for a drainage basin in Michigan. Remote sensing...

Automating Airfield Condition Data Collection
This paper discusses the advantages and disadvantages of the newest technology for the data collection requirements of an airport interested in implementing a pavement management system....

Accurate Shoreline Mapping: Past, Present, and Future
Mapping historical shoreline changes and predicting future shoreline positions requires both accurate and precise analyses of time-dependent fluctuations in water levels and sediment volumes...
