Description :
Evaluates potential of measuring/mapping forest decline in spruce-fir forest using TM simulator data. TMS ratios of 1.65/1.23 and 1.65/0.83 micro-m bands are found to be strongly correlated with ground-based measurements of forest damage. Ratio colour density slice images using these band ratios and images using 0.56 micro-m and 1.65 micro-m bands provide means of detecting, quantifying and mapping levels of forest decline. - (CB)
