Abstract:

Characteristics of mechanical and synthetic radar systems are reviewed. Signature elements of karst topography such as a vertical drainage pattern, knobs, and sinkholes are identified for Side Looking Airborne Radar SLAR imagery. SLAR imagery of the Kentucky Pennyroyal and karst areas in Florida is presented with the signature elements highlighted. Applications of SLAR imagery to the identification and mapping of karst areas in physically, climatologically, or politically inaccessible areas is addressed. Author
