This project was intended to investigate the use of remote sensing techniques in the design of sampling programs on large lakes and streams. The wide overview of aerial photography and infrared thermal mapping scanners provide means of visualizing and measuring variations in water characteristics which might require compensation for representative sampling. Several sites on Fort Loudoun Lake were samples to determine whether persistent patterns of water quality variations existed. The parameters measured were temperature, measured with a Barnes Radiometer, turbidity and color. Persistent patterns were found in the vicinity of tributary inflows and it was concluded that aerial techniques would be useful in mapping the extent and shape. (Modified author abstract)
