The Environmental Protection Agency and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration entered into a five-year overhead monitoring project in June, 1975. The purpose of this joint project was to transfer, from NASA to EPA, hardware and software technology for processing remotely sensed digital data and to assist EPA in developing and maintaining an operational remote sensing monitoring system. The overall objective was to define, develop, and demonstrate operational remote sensing techniques to rapidly monitor, in a cost-effective manner, the success with which an energy-related extraction site has been, or is being, rehabilitated. This report discusses the technology transfer that has successfully taken place. It also describes the remote sensing monitoring system EPA has established.
