An Application of LANDSAT Multispectral Imagery for the Classification of Hydrobiological Systems: Shark River Slough, Everglades National Park, Florida: Report T-544.

Date Issued:

Summary:
The intricate ecosystem of Everglades National Park, FL depends on sufficient quantities of fresh water and appropriate rates of delivery. Orbital remote sensing satellites (LANDSAT A, B, and C) have provided a comprehensive and repetitive survey of the multivariant hydrologic parameters over both the accessible and inaccessible regions of the park. The authors analyzed LANDSAT multispectral data for the Shark River Slough region of the park. Hydrobiological zones were determined and plotted (using field data and high flight aerial U-2 photography). The spectral plots provided utility in formulating multispectral relationships between the emittent energy from the slough in order to determine the best possible multispectral wavelength combinations to enhance classification results. The authors used these classifications to determine the extent of each hydrobiological zone in the slough, as well as flow vectors for water movement.
