SUMMARY OF ERTS DATA APPLICATIONS IN ALASKA

The wide utilization of ERTS data by federal, state and industrial agencies in Alaska is increasingly directed toward the solution of operational problems in resource inventories, environmental surveys, and land use planning. Examples of some applications are discussed in connection with surveys of potential agricultural lands; mapping of predicted archaeological sites; permafrost terrain and aufeis mapping; snow melt enhancement from Purdhoe Bay roads; geologic interpretations correlated with possible new petroleum fields and other applications.
