A methodology for using remote sensing to detect landfill leachate contamination of ground and surface water is described. Among the topics covered are leachate indicators, spatial and temporal aspects of leachate detection, sensor selection, flight design and data interpretation. Specific methodologies for using remote sensing to detect leachate under various situations are described. These range from survey monitoring of individual landfills to comprehensive programs for regulatory monitoring and landfills.
