Photography from Space as Environmental Regulatory Tool: Remote Sensing and the Prosecutor

Aerial Videotape Mapping of Coastal Geomorphic Changes
An aerial geomorphic mapping system was developed to examine the spatial and temporal variability in the coastal geomorphology of Louisiana. Between 1984 and 1990 eleven sequential annual...

Remote Sensing and the Coastal Management in Brazil
This paper intends to demonstrate the possibility of employing remote sensing techniques in the Brazilian Coastal Management Program (Programa Brasileiro de Gerenciamento Costeiro). It...

Use of Remote Sensing and G.I.S. in the Economic Analysis of Flood Damage Reduction—Three Recent Case Histories
Three recent studies of the Trinity River in the nine-city Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex have been based on a regional geographic information system (G.I.S.), using digitized satellite imagery...

Contributions of Satellite Imagery to Water Resource Evaluations
Satellite images may also facilitate the development and maintenance of regional Geographic Information Systems (GIS) by providing both a source of base map creation and update, as well...

Multi-Date Image Analyses Used for Determining Flood Area Impacts in the Saginaw River Basin, Michigan
During the months of September and October 1986, a series of storms swept across the Lower Peninsula of Michigan. These heavy downpours caused $400 million worth of flood damages. Significant...

Evaporation and Snowmelt Estimates from Satellite Data
Satellite imagery has been used to estimate saltwater evaporation and snowmelt runoff. Water surface temperatures can be obtained from satellite thermal infrared data. Saltwater evaporation...

Remote Sensing of Rainfall with NEXRAD
In utilizing the Next Generation Weather Radar (NEXRAD) for remote sensing of rainfall, three stages of precipitation processing have been developed by the National Weather Service's...

Beach Evolution in Sulphur Island
Seasonal variation of shore area of Sulphur Island is studied by analyzing aerial photographs of the island taken seasonally for the past two years. Analysis reveals that shore area in...

The Effect of Hard Stabilization upon Dry Beach Width

Building on the Coastal Barriers Resource Act
In 1982, the Coastal Barrier Resources Act (CBRA) was enacted to minimize the loss of human life, wasteful expenditure of Federal revenues, and damage to fish and wildlife and other natural...

Erosion and Washover in Coastal Louisiana
In 1985 three hurricanes affected the barrier coastline (Caminada-Moreau Headland) of Louisiana. These produced severe coastal erosion and rapid washover extension. Using the 1979 U.S.G.S....
