Abstract: The work reported herein was conducted at the U. S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station (WES), Vicksburg, Mississippi, as a portion of Work Unit 003, "Remote Sensing of the Environment," Task 01, "Environmental Quality Management for Military Facilities," Project 4Al62121A896, "Environmental Quality for Construction and Operation of Military Facilities." This report is essentially a thesis submitted to the Graduate School of the Pennsylvania State University in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy in the Department of Civil Engineering. The work is a comprehensive documentation of the procedures developed by the author for the systematic evaluation of remote sensor performance and quantitative mission planning. This work was accomplished under the general supervision of Mr. W. G. Shockley, Chief of the Mobility and Environmental Systems Laboratory (MESL), and Mr. B. 0. Benn, Chief of the Environmental Systems Division. This report was prepared by Mr. L. E. Link, Jr., Chief of the Environmental Research Branch (ERB). The author is indebted to the management personnel of the MESL for their support and invaluable guidance during the execution of this study. Particular appreciation is expressed to Messrs. Shockley, Benn, W. E. Grabau, and J. R. Lundien. The author also extends sincere appreciation to his faculty advisor, Dr. Gert Aron and the other members of his committee, Dr. F. Y. Borden, Dr. Harmer Weeden, and Dr. Arthur Miller. Appreciation is also to extended to Mr. J. R. Stabler, ERB, for his invaluable computer programming assistance. COL G. H. Hilt, CE, and COL J. L. Cannon, CE, were Directors of the WES during this study and preparation of this report. Mr. F. R. Brown was Technical Director.
