TABLES

  1. Thematic Mapper spectral bands
  2. Massachusetts lakes for which the distributions of floating, emergent, and submerged macrophytes were mapped in 1996, 1997, and 1998 for calibration of Landsat-5 Thematic Mapper imagery
  3. Lakes sampled by Massachusetts Water Watch Partnership volunteers concurrently with U.S. Geological Survey staff for chlorophyll concentration, Secchi disk transparency, color, and water temperature in 1997 and 1998
  4. Landsat-5 Thematic Mapper scenes used to assess water quality and trophic state of Massachusetts lakes
  5. Thematic Mapper spectral bands and combinations of bands used as models to test for correlations with water-quality and trophic-state data for Massachusetts lakes
  6. Massachusetts lakes sampled in 1996, 1997, and 1998, and numbers of measurements of water-quality characteristics used to calibrate Landsat-5 Thematic Mapper imagery
  7. Lake-water-quality data collected within 24 hours of Landsat-5 Thematic Mapper imaging of the lakes, and haze-corrected digital numbers corresponding to the station locations in the images
