Abstract:

On June 12, 1967, Test Site 128 Mississippi Delta was overflown on three flights by the NASA Convair 240A aircraft equipped with multispectral sensors as a part of Mission 50. The data obtained was studied to determine its quality and scientific value. Twenty-seven percent of the color photography taken by the RC-8 metric camera was judged to be useful. Many potentially useful photographs were lost due to untimely film changes. The sediment-boundary could easily be seen in the RC-8 photography. Author
