PROSPECTS FOR SATELLITE APPLICATIONS IN AUSTRALIAN RANGELANDS
The Landsat satellite system and its data products are briefly described. Rangeland applications in the fields of resource inventory, monitoring of seasonal conditions and monitoring of ecological condition are discussed. Inventory applications are already operational and it is concluded that monitoring of seasonal conditions is potentially operational. The potential for monitoring of ecological condition is still largely unproven.
