A study of the feasibility of applying automatic data processing techniques to airborne line-scan imagery of coastal areas for beach reconnaissance is presented. Preliminary work indicates that parallel microdensitometer scans of aerial photographs of a coastal area near Galveston, Texas, where ocean swell is visible, can be cross-correlated, both spatially and temporally, to extract wave length, wave angle, and wave speed.
