MULTIBAND PHOTOS FOR A TIDAL MARSH

A VARIETY OF MULTIBAND IMAGERY, INCLUDING NINE-LENS MULTIBAND IMAGERY IN THE 400-900 MILLIMICRON RANGE, PANCHROMATIC, EKTARCHROME, AND EKTACHROME-INFRARED PHOTOGRAPHY, HAS BEEN OBTAINED FOR A TIDELANDS AREA IN SAN FRANCISCO BAY. A TECHNIQUE FOR COMPARING THEIR RELATIVE UTILITY FOR SPECIFIC GEOMORPHIC INTERPRETATIONS HAS BEEN DEVELOPED, WHEREBY A SUBJECTIVE FORM OF TRACING ANALYSIS MAY BE CORRELATED WITH A MORE OBJECTIVE (AND QUANTITATIVE) SCHEME OF SELECTED MICRODENSITOMETER TRAVERSES ACROSS THE VARIOUS NEGATIVES AND POSITIVE TRANSPARENCIES. THE RESULTS SUGGEST THAT THE NINE-LENS MULTIBAND IMAGERY IS EXCESSIVE, AND, THAT FOR A SIMILAR USE AS THAT OF THE PHOTOS STUDIED, COULD BE REDUCED TO FOUR-LENS IMAGERY. THE MOST USEFUL FRAMES ARE THE 550-630 MILLIMICRON BANDWIDTH, THE NEAR- INFRARED, THE EKTACHROME COLOR TRANSPARENCY, AND THE EKTACHROME-INFRARED TRANSPARENCY. VARIOUS UTILITIES ARE SUGGESTED FOR EACH TYPE OF IMAGERY, AND INCREASED EXPERIMENTATION BY GEOLOGISTS WITH THE MICRODENSITOMETER IS URGED. /PE/
