A qualitative evaluation of Landsat imagery of Australian rangelands
R.D. Graetz, David M. Carneggie, R. Hacker, C. Lendon, D.G. Wilcox
1976, The Australian Rangeland Journal (1) 53-59
The capability of multidate, multispectral ERTS-1 imagery of three different rangeland areas within Australia was evaluated for its usefulness in preparing inventories of rangeland types, assessing on a broad scale range condition within these rangeland types, and assessing the response of rangelands to rainfall events over large areas. For the...
Geothermal flux through palagonitized tephra, Surtsey, Iceland: The Surtsey temperature-data-relay experiment via Landsat-1
Jules D. Friedman, Duane M. Preble, Sveinn P. Jakobsson
1976, Journal of Research of the U.S. Geological Survey (4) 645-659
The net geothermal flux through palagonitized basaltic tephra rims of the Surtur I and Surtur II craters at Surtsey, Iceland, in 1972, is estimated at 780 ±325 μcal cm-2s-1, indicating a decline since 1969 when a flux of 1,500 μcal cm-2s-1 was estimated. Heat flux in this range characterizes the...
Improving estimates of streamflow characteristics by using Landsat-1 imagery
Este F. Hollyday
1976, Journal of Research of the U.S. Geological Survey (4) 517-531
Imagery from the first Earth Resources Technology Satellite (renamed Landsat-1) was used to discriminate physical features of drainage basins in an effort to improve equations used to estimate streamflow characteristics at gaged and ungaged sites. Records of 20 gaged basins in the Delmarva Peninsula of Maryland, Delaware, and Virginia were...
Evaluation of LANDSAT-2 (ERTS) images applied to geologic structures and mineral resources of South America: Type II progress report for period June 30, 1975-June 30, 1976
William D. Carter, William S. Kowalik
1976, Report
The author has identified the following significant results. The Salar of Coposa is located in northern Chile along the frontier with Bolivia. The surface was divided into six general classes of materials. Analysis of LANDSAT image 1243-14001 by use of interactive multispectral computer (Image 100) enabled accurate repetition of these...
Evaluation of LANDSAT-1 image applications to geologic mapping, structural analysis and mineral resource inventory of South America with special emphasis on the Andes Mountain region: Type III final report for period January 1973 to July 1974
William D. Carter
1976, Report
The author has identified the following significant results. The discovery of copper mineralization along a lineament mapped in Area 7 (La Paz) has lent credence to the use of LANDSAT 1 data as a basic step in mineral exploration. In Area 9 (Copiapo Region), a number of lineaments were found...
Access routes to the U.S. Geological Survey's EROS Data Center, Sioux Falls, South Dakota
Water Resources Division, U.S. Geological Survey
1976, Report
The EROS Data Center is a part of the Earth Resources Observation Systems (EROS) Program of the Department of the Interior, managed by the U.S. Geological Survey. It is the national center for the processing anddissemination of spacecraft and aircraft acquired photographic imagery and electronic data of the Earth's resources....
Progress in remote sensing (1972-1976)
W. A. Fischer, W. R. Hemphill, Allan Kover
1976, Photogrammetria (32) 33-72
This report concerns the progress in remote sensing during the period 1972–1976. Remote sensing has been variously defined but is basically the art or science of telling something about an object without touching it. During the past four years, the major research thrusts have been in three areas: (1) computer-assisted enhancement and...
Utilization of satellite data for inventorying prairie ponds and lakes
E.A. Work, D.S. Gilmer
1976, Photogrammetric Engineering and Remote Sensing (42) 685-694
By using data acquired by LANDSAT-1 (formerly ERTS- 1), studies were conducted in extracting information necessary for formulating management decisions relating to migratory waterfowl. Management decisions are based in part on an assessment ofhabitat characteristics, specifically numbers, distribution, and quality of ponds and lakes in the prime breeding range. This...
Interpretation, compilation and field verification procedures in the CARETS project
Robert H. Alexander, Peter W. De Forth, Katherine A. Fitzpatrick, Harry F. Lins, Herbert K. McGinty III
1975, Final Report Volume 5
The production of the CARETS map data base involved the development of a series of procedures for interpreting, compiling, and verifying data obtained from remote sensor sources. Level II land use mapping from high-altitude aircraft photography at a scale of 1:100,000 required production of a photomosaic mapping base for each...
Norfolk and environs: A land use perspective
Robert H. Alexander, Peter J. Buzzanell, Katherine A. Fitzpatrick, Harry F. Lins, Herbert K. McGinty III
1975, Final Report Volume 2, Part A
The Norfolk-Portsmouth Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area (SMSA) in southeastern Virginia was the site of intensive testing of a number of land resources assessment methods, built around the availability of remotely sensed data from the Earth Resources Technology Satellite (ERTS-I), later renamed LANDSAT I. The Norfolk tests were part of a...

Preliminary report on the use of LANDSAT-1 (ERTS-1) reflectance data in locating alteration zones associated with uranium mineralization near Cameron, Arizona
Charles S. Spirakis, Christopher D. Condit
1975, Open-File Report 75-416
LANDSAT-I (ERTS-I) multispectral reflectance data were used to enhance the detection of alteration around uranium deposits near Cameron, Ariz. The technique involved stretching and ratioing computer-enhanced data from which electronic noise and atmospheric haze had been removed. Using present techniques, the work proves that LANDSAT-I data are useful in detecting...
Satellite relay and processing of hydrologic data in south Florida
E.T. Wimberly
1975, Water-Resources Investigations Report 75-12
Management of water in south Florida requires current hydrologic data on water levels and rainfall. This need is being met by a data processing system which provides near-real-time data from remote areas. The flow of data is from data-collection platforms at field sites via LANDSAT-1 satellite to the National Aeronautics...
