Abstract

The AA. give a brief synthesis of the information obtainable from remote-sensing data and how it can be related to 2 significant functions of catchment hydrology, namely, the processes of production and transfer. After presenting examples of the type of information that can be derived from remote sensing (characterisation of soil surface by different wavelengths, temporal changes of surface states, incision and geometry of possible water pathways on the surface, etc.), they examine how this information can provide parameters for input into runoff and erosion models. Finally, they assess the progress in assimilating remote-sensing data into deterministicmodels of storm runoff
