AIRBORNE THERMAL MAPPING OF A “FLOW‐THROUGH” LAKE IN THE NEBRASKA SANDHILLS

Abstract

The Sandhills region represents a tremendous water resource for the State of Nebraska. Small shallow lakes, marshes, and subirrigated meadows are abundant due to interactions between ground water and surface water. One theory relating ground water to lake‐flow systems in the Sandhills has been termed the “flow‐through” concept. Thermal‐infrared remotely acquired images document the flow‐through model for a test site in Western Nebraska.
