Abstract The purpose of the investigation was to research and document the application of remote sensing technology for wetlands detection. Various sensors and platforms are evaluated for: suitability to monitor specific wetland systems; effectiveness of detailing wetland extent and capability to monitoring changes; and relative cost-benefits to implementing and updating wetlands database. The environment to be monitored consist of physiographic and ecological wetland resources affected directly or indirectly by anthropogenic activity. Aircraft and satellite remote sensing can be used to record and assess the condition of these resources. Monitoring of environmental conditions is based on the observation and interpretation of certain landscape features. Although some forms of monitoring are continuous, resource monitoring from aircraft and satellite platforms is periodic in nature, with change being documented through a series of observations over a given span of time. The report summarizes the finding of a bibliographic search on the methods used to inventory and/or detect changes in wetlands environments. The bibliography contains numerous citations and is not intended to be all-inclusive. Books, major journal and symposium procedings were examined. The finding documented will provide the potential user with a basic understanding of remote sensing technology as it is applied to wetland monitoring and analysis.
