Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


High resolution aerial (0.3-3.0 m) multispectral imagery was acquired over several sub-basins of the Reynolds Creek Experimental Watershed (RCEW) in 1996 to provide various spatial resolution imagery for the development of vegetation-related GIS layers (LAI, percent cover, vegetation type, canopy height, root depth, etc.). Thermatic Mapper (TM) imagery (30 m) was also collected for the entire RCEW. The imagery will provide data to a remote sensing input driven hydrological model. This paper concentrates on the development of the GIS layers in the ArcView environment to be used with the distributed hydrological model.
