This report describes an evaluation of the feasibility of using a remotely sensed data base as input into the Hydrologic Simulation Program-Fortran (HSPF). Remotely sensed data from the satellite LANDSAT and conventionally obtained data were used to set up the input parameters of HSPF. Simulations were run to compare the two sets of data. The remotely sensed data set performed as least as well as the conventional one when compared with observed data. In addition, it was estimated to offer savings of 30 to 50 percent in the cost of set up and operations.
