Abstract:Remote Sensing is a scientific discipline of non-contact monitoring. It includes a range of technologies that span from aerial photography to advanced spectral imaging and analytical methods. This Session is designed to demonstrate contemporary practical applications of remote sensing in supporting the Agency's efforts in supporting healthy communities and healthy ecosystems. Six presentations will document how remote sensing is playing a critical role in protecting human and ecological health on both a National/Regional scale, and on a local/site specific scale.

In the National/Regional applications area, Jim Wickham (NERL) will present on the development and utilization of the National Land Cover Database (NLCD). Second, Bruce Jones (ORD) will present on the development of Landscape Indicators from the NLCD and their relationship to ecosystem quality. Third, Karl Hermann (Region 8) will present on the develop of nutrient loading statistics from both the NLCD and Landscape Indicators for specific application in Region 8.

In the site specific area, Taylor Jarnagin (NERL) will present research on the mapping of Impervious Surfaces and their relationship to streamflow, water quality and watershed protection. David Jennings (NERL) will present the application of high resolution LIDAR data in the Clarksburg, Maryland Special Protection Area, discussing the use this emerging technology as a new and potentially significant tool in watershed modeling. Finally, Steve Hirsh (Region 3) will present the use of remote sensing to remediate buried munitions and arsenic contamination at the Spring Valley FUDS site in Washington D.C.
