Abstract
  • In 1979, the Geographic Applications Laboratory of the Department of Geography, Oregon State University, was retained by the Portland General Electric Company to form and supervise a program to monitor the bioenvironment in the vicinity of the Boardman Coal-Fired Power plant. This partially fulfills requirements of the Department of Energy in allowing the newly built power plant to become operational. This was achieved in August, 1980. Remote sensing was chosen as the tool to perform this task because of its ability to monitor large areas effectively at a minimal cost. Three imagery modes of varying scale were selected (1) LANDSAT Multispectral Scanning; (2) High level color infrared imagery acquired by NASA U-2 operational aircraft and; (3) Low level color and color infrared imagery, which was selected as the primary source of analysis. After establishing study area boundaries, - study sites and primary imagery flight lines, the functions of this project included: imagery acquisition; analytical interpretation; monthly and annual written evaluations of study area conditions and imagery quality; and establishment of a background file for future analytical reference.
