Abstract

Evaluation of multispectral imagery from three floods occurring at different times of year in Iowa has indicated methods of mapping flood inundation several days after flood waters have returned to the main channel of rivers. Cooperative studies by the Iowa Geological Survey, Remote Sensing Laboratory and the U. S. Geological Survey, Water Resources Division, suggests that color infrared film would provide flood inundation data having the highest multiplicity of possible uses for floodplain management-planning in Iowa.
