Remote sensing techniques can be use to assess several water quality parameters (i.e., suspended sediments (turbidity), chlorophyll, temperature) that are key factors in defining TMDLs. These optical and thermal sensors on boats, aircraft, and satellites provide both spatial and temporal information needed to understand changes in water quality parameters necessary for developing better management practices to improve water quality. With recent and planned launches of satellites with improved spectral and spatial resolution sensors, greater application of remote sensing techniques to assess and monitor water quality parameters will be possible. These remote sensing techniques should improve our abilities to assess the landscape and thus better define TMDLs and then provide monitoring data to follow clean-up efforts.
