DISTINGUISHING SALINE FROM NON-SALINE RANGELANDS WITH SKYLAD IMAGERY

A flight line in Starr County, Texas, was used to test the feasibility of distinguishing saline from non-saline rangelands when using very small-scale (1:3,000,000) Skylab satellite imagery. Film optical density readings were made on six different films (four black-and-white, one conventional, and one infrared color) using various film/filter combinations. Differentiating between saline and non-saline rangelands was possible by using microdensitometry on black-and-white Skylab imagery. /Author/
