- The author has identified the following significant results. Ground truth data have been compiled and 256 rainfall runoff events have been used to detemine coefficients for two storm runoff equations that apply to the 20 study watersheds. Two scenes have been processed using CCT data. Data pertinent to each of the study watersheds have been excerpted from the tapes. A computer program and display technique has been developed to retrieve the data from irregular shaped areas and store it in a format that allows future display of only the area desired. Means, standard deviations, and distributions have been determined for extreme dry and extreme wet conditions in the dormant season. Mean digital values show some variation between watersheds when dry, but no significant differences when wet. Standard deviations of digital values diminish drastically under wet dormant conditions. Thus the standard deviations may be a good indicator of influence of moisture. Distributions of seven bit values show that odd numbers are prevalent and irregular distribution may influence some classification schemes now in use.
