314 Symposium--Using Remote Sensing and GIS Techniques to Delineate Wetlands

Oral Session
S10 Wetland Soils Data from remote sensing and geographic information systems (GIS) are rapidly increasing in the natural sciences. Satellite and aerial applications are used for initial reconnaissance and gathering spatial data that show soil-landscape relationships which may be useful for wetland loss accounting. The GIS applications range from utilizing terrain attributes as environmental covariates to accumulating multiple layers of data for visualization. As these technologies are advancing, there is an increased need for understanding the research applications for identifying landscape-vegetation-soil relationships which relate to wetland assessment and function. This symposium will highlight new technologies for evaluating wetland ecosystems.
