Field Study for Landsat Water Quality Verification

Landsat Image Processing and Mapping Techniques and Their Utility for Civil Engineering Applications (Abstract)

Snow-Covered Area Utilization in Runoff Forecasts
Long-term data on snow-covered area from aircraft and satellite observations have been investigated for application to water-supply forecasting in California's southern Sierra...

Geodetic Surveying: The Next Decade
By the end of the next decade (1988), most large-area geodetic surveys will probably be made using a satellite Doppler positioning system, an inertial positioning system, or some combination...

Energy From Space
Patented by Peter Glaser in 1973 the solar power satellite is a concept still mindboggling to some. It is a satellite orbiting 22,300 miles (35,800 km) above earth in geosynchronous orbit....

Coming This Year: Reusable Link with Space
Scheduled for launch in early 1980, the Space Shuttle is the first reusable space vehicle. It will reduce space flight cost, saving an estimated $11.2 billion between 1980 and 1991. This...

Building Skyscrapers in Orbit
NASA plans to build a host of large structures (communications antennas, remote-sensing radiometers, solar power satellites, etc.) in space. Three ways to build them are: (1)Fabricate...

What Has the U.S. Gotten Out of the Space Program—
Since the time of its creation in 1958, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration has spent billions of dollars on space activities. What has the U.S. gotten out of these tremendous...

Seasonal and Daily Snowmelt Runoff Estimates Utilizing Satellite Data

Doppler Satellite Surveying System
The Doppler Satellite System has become an indispensable tool for the surveyor. Because of its portability, all weather capabilities, reasonable cost, and accuracies at the sub-meter level,...

Precision Surveying Using Radio Interferometry
The application of Very long baseline Interferometry (VLBI) to surveying is reviewed. An examination of the error budget for the VLBI observing system in use by the GSFC/HO/MIT VLBI team...

Fabric Roofs Feel the Pressure
Plastic-coated fabric roofs have been growing in popularity with uses ranging from covering a football stadium in Michigan to housing satellite-tracking stations. Article takes a look...

Satellite Observations of Water Quality
LANDSAT-1 observations of water quality indicate that hydrography, suspended solids, and chlorophyll a can be measured with MSS bands 4, 5, and 6, respectively. As a summary of both published...

History of Geodetic Networks
The 50th anniversary of the Surveying and Mapping Division of ASCE provides an occasion to review some of the many advancements that have led to the current state of the art in geodesy....

Surveying-Mapping Research from Earth Satellites
The present space research emphasis on earth resources and environmental monitoring has potential benefits for the mapping, planning, and ocean engineering professions. Mapping at scales...

Use of Satellite Data in Urban Hydrologic Models
The study investigates the use of computer-aided analysis of LANDSAT multispectral data in estimating percentage of imperviousness and associated land uses needed in urban hydrologic modeling....

Satellites Helping Solve Some Down-to-Earth Civil Engineering Problems
With its ERTS (Earth Resources Technology Satellite) and other satellites and U2 high-flying aircraft, NASA is generating much remote sensing information about the condition of the atmosphere,...

Satellite Measurements of Turbidity of Coastal Waters

Surveying and Mapping from Orbital Platforms
The methods of triangulation and photogrammetric mappings have been successfully applied to the surveying and mapping of both the moon and the earth. The accuracy of lunar phototriangulation...
