Pritchard, Department of Earth Sciences, University of South Alabama, Mobile, AL E-mail: [email protected] Land use within the Dog River Watershed has undergone major changes in the past two.

The Sierra Nevada of California is a region where large forest fires have been suppressed for over a century and future climate warming has the potential to alter vegetation cover and surface water runoff.

A detailed geographic record of recent changes in vegetation cover across the Sierra Nevada remains a gap that can be filled with satellite remote sensing by: 5.

This study conducted computer-aided image analysis of land use and land cover in Xilin River Basin, Inner Mongolia, using 4 sets of Landsat TM/ETM+ images acquired on JAugSeptem andrespectively. Primarily, 17 sub-class land cover types were recognized, including nine grassland types at community level:F.

Daily streamflow records for water years – in the Susitna River Basin range in length from 4 to 57 years, and many are distributed within that period in a way that might not. During the first half ofthe U.S. Midwest experienced unusually heavy rains. Much of the United States in the upper reaches of the Mississippi River drainage basin received more than times their average rainfall in the first six months of the year, and parts of North Dakota, Iowa, and Kansas experienced more than double.

Land-cover information is needed to select subbasins within the New River basin, Tennessee, for the study of hydrologic processes and also is needed to transfer study results to other sites affected by coal mining. It was believed that data recorded by the first Earth Resources Technology Satellite (Landsat-1) could be processed to yield the needed land-cover information.
