Remote sensing methods for spill detection and tracking: Final report 1

No Name Supplied
1988
This project had three objectives, as stated in the contract:1. To provide end results which will assist the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) in applying remote sensing and geographic information system (GIS) technologies to monitoring, detection, and remediation of plumes and spills.2. To provide valuable experience and training to the investigators so that they can apply the results to current environmental problems.3. To evaluate and develop GIS and remote sensing
more » ... remote sensing technologies for detection and tracking of plumes, including:a. the movement of hazardous materials in the environment following accidental spills into the atmosphere, surface water, or ground water.b. the discharge of gases and particulates into the air, and suspended solids and heated waste water into the water from sewage treatment plants, manufacturing industries, and power generation stations.c. leachate movement in groundwater around hazardous waste sites.
