Recent interpretation studies of Side-Looking Airborne Radar Imagery have demonstrated the potential value of SLAR in the classification of surficial materials prior to field tests. Through processes familiar to the interpretation of conventional photography, an interpretation of conventional and radar imagery, taken simultaneously, has shown that the recongnition of diagnostic patterns of vegetation, geology, drainage, land use and landforms will enable an experienced soil scientist to make a reasonable assessment of regional engineering surficial material conditions. Recently developed SLAR imagery includes potential advantages and inherent disadvantages. /Author/
