This report describes the application of Landsat multispectral scanning to estuarine water quality, with specific reference to dredging and silviculture practices. Water quality data collected biweekly since 1972 in the Apalachicola, Bay, Florida, by Florida State University, and Landsat data covering the same geographical area were used as data base for these correlative investigations. The research indicates that Landsat can provide temporal cause and effect information relating to land-use changes and water quality.
