Terrain Analysis From Space Shuttle Photographs of Tibet
Several Space Shuttle missions obtained false color and large format, high resolution, black and white stereo photography at an approximate scale of 1:800,000. In addition to available...

Orthophotoquad Mapping Program for Alaska
The U. S. Geological Survey (USGS) is the lead civilian mapping agency in the United States and is responsible for creating and maintaining numerous map series. In Alaska the standard...

Picture Index for Field Verification of Crop Coefficients
A picture index has been developed for eight irrigation crops to obtain reliable, rapid, and low-cost field determinations of crop growth stages and corresponding crop coefficient (Kc)...

Remote Sensing of Mangrove Areas on the Brazilian Coast
Remote sensing techniques are compared when applied on the survey of mangrove areas. The use of LANDSAT MSS scenes from channels 5 and 7, processed by interactive analyzer, allowed the...

Modern and Historic Mapping of Tidal Marshlands of San Francisco Bay, California
In this work, studies were made of two marshland sites shown on the old maps that presently remain subject to tidal action. For each site, historic maps dating from the 1850's...

Experiments on Coaxial Heater Water Discharges
The paper describes an experimental investigation in which heated water was discharged coaxially into rectangular open channel flow from a slot placed at the channel center. Discharge...

Saltation in Water Dynamics
An evaluation of the fluid forces exerted on a bed load particle is presented. The study used strobe photography to measure the kinematics of a sphere moving via saltation along the bed...

Vehicle Lateral Placements on Urban Roads
Time-lapse photographs were taken of traffic flows on five streets of varying lane width in the Toronto region. From these photographs, time histories of lateral placements and forward...

Use of Remote Sensing in Citriculture Assessment

Land Subsidence and Earth Fissuring in Central Arizona
Land subsidence and earth fissures in central Arizona are geologic hazards being monitored by aerial photography. Ground-water level declines of 200ft - 400ft (61m - 122m) in the past...
