Non-Destructive Remote Sensing of Hazardous Waste Sites
This paper describes how the non-contact, nondestructive, remote sensing techniques, of Computer Enhanced Infrared Thermography and Ground Penetrating Radar, may be used to detect buried...

Aircraft Noise Monitoring at Denver International Airport
This paper describes design of the noise monitoring system for Denver International Airport. When the airport opens in 1993, the system must monitor compliance with two standards established...

Impact of the New Denver Airport on the Air Traffic Control System
Building the new Denver Airport has two major impacts on air traffic control: first, it requires redesigning the airspace surrounding the Denver area; and second, it requires moving to...

Importance of the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) Satellite to Hydrological Investigations
Rainfall over the global tropics is crucial to the global hydrological cycle and to water resources in most developing countries. Its magnitude and variations are presently poorly known....

Radar Monitoring of Ice on the Upper Niagara River
A standard marine radar was used during the winter of 1987-88 to evaluate its potential to monitor the presence and movement of ice in the Grass Island Pool area of the upper Niagara River....

Delineation of Voids Beneath Highways in Massachusetts

NEXRAD Input to Real-Time Reservoir Regulation
The Corps of Engineers has a need for radar information to enhance rain gauge measurements in determining average rainfall over a particular basin for hydrological forecast models used...

Utilization of Weather Radar for Hydrologic Forecasting
New technologies to collect, analyze, store, retrieve and display hydrologic data offer significant improvements to conventional methodologies used for predicting hydrologic events. Computer...

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...

Detection of 2-D Nearshore Wave Patterns Using Linear Prediction and SAR Data
Extraction of wave parameters such as wavelength and direction on radar images is normaly done using fast Fourier transforms (FFT) on typical image size of 256 × 256 which may not be appropriate...

HF Radar Ocean Surface Mapping in Monterey Bay as a Prototype for California Coastal Environmental Monitoring and Governance
A network of coastal HF radars is being established to provide real-time coverage of ocean surface currents, onshore waves, and ultimately wind fields over Monterey Bay. Data products...

Gas Transfer Velocities and Radar Backscatter from the Water Surface
Gas transfer velocities of sulfur hexafluoride, methane, and nitrous oxide were determined in two different wind-wave tanks and related to friction velocity and radar backscatter from...

Subsurface Pavement Structure Inventory Using Ground Penetrating Radar and a Bore Hole Camera
The Pavement Management System (PMS) is now a necessary pavement evaluation tool. The PMS data base has been historically fed with surface inspection data, but increasing demands for accurate...

Computer-Aided Structural Design of a Lunar Radio Telescope

Two-Dimensional Modeling of Overland Flow
Two-dimensional distributed finite element (F-E) and finite difference (F-D) models are developed to simulate storm events on arid watersheds. The F-E model uses the kinematic wave approximation,...

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...

A Multi-Level Contour Method for Tracking and Forecasting Rain Fields of Severe Storms by Weather Radars
A new automated method is developed in order to track and predict in short-term (15 min-1 hr lead times) the evolution of rain fields in time and space, as observed by weather radars....

Remotely Sensed Input Data for Real-Time Flood Forecasting
The WATFLOOD flood forecasting system has been developed to use a variety of remotely sensed data, namely weather radar for precipitation, Landsat MSS imagery for land cover classification,...
