DATA WERE COLLECTED WITH MULTISENSOR ARRAY, INCLUDING CAMERAS AND MULTISPECTRAL SENSORS. IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT: (1) NIGHTTIME THERMAL INFRARED IMAGERY IS THE BEST TECHNIQUE FOR THE REMOTE DETECTION OF SURFACE WATER; (2) PHOTOGRAPHS WITH BOTH DAY AND NIGHT THERMAL INFRARED IMAGERY CAN BE USED COLLECTIVELY TO DETECT AND DELINEATE HIGH MOISTURE CONTENT SOILS; AND (3) PHOTOGRAPHS AND DAYTIME AND NIGHTTIME THERMAL INFRARED IMAGERY USED COLLECTIVELY, ALSO HAVE GREAT POTENTIAL FOR THE LOCATION OF SUBSURFACE CAVITIES. /FHWA/
