dc.description.abstractCoastal wetlands present an extremely harsh physical environment in which a variety of organisms survive. That is, despite their subjection to periodical wet and dry conditions as a result of tidal inundation and to alternating warm and cold cycles daily, the coastal wetlands provide one of the most biologically and ecologically valuable habitats presently known (Reimol and Linthurst, 1973). Estuaries, for example, serve as a nursery ground for marine organisms by providing food and protection from larger predators. The wetlands also serve as a physical barrier to protect the coast from severe erosion during coastal storms and hurricanes. There exists a variety of scientific methodologies to examine and study the importance and complexity of these wetlands systems. Fornes and Reimold (1973), Reimold et al. (1972), and Thompson et al. (1973) have considered remote sensing technology as applicable to several specific wetland problems. It will be the purpose of this paper to summarize and examine multiple uses of remote sensing of wetlands and their potential applications to similar systems.en
